hi sascha --
yes. i think we hope there won't actually be any more of those, but
if there are, that patch will be there. current and future releases
get the patch for free, since it's upstream. (thank you)
p.s. somehow the git hash i pasted above is incorrect. the correct
cherry-pick was this one:
Author: Sascha Silbe <silbe at activitycentral.com>
Date: Wed May 11 14:52:34 2011 +0200
libertas: Add libertas_disablemesh module parameter to disable mesh
This allows individual users and deployments to disable mesh support at
runtime, i.e. without having to build and maintain a custom kernel.
Based on a patch by Paul Fox <pgf at laptop.org>.
