Staging tree status for the .33 kernel merge

Filed under
Linux

Here's a summary of the state of the drivers/staging/ tree, basically what will be coming in the 2.6.33 merge, and what the status of the different drivers are so far.

Here's some drivers that will be removed in the 2.6.33 kernel:

* android drivers. Google and no one else stepped up to maintain them, so they will be dropped. So sad...
* dst The developer isn't working on this anymore and recommended that it be removed as no one is using it.

Here is some new drivers that will show up in .33:

* arlan, netwave, strip, wavelan - wireless drivers that are on their way out of the kernel. If anyone is actually using this old, obsolete hardware, speak up soon, otherwise they will be removed in a few kernel releases.
* ramzswap - a compressed ram driver
* rtl8192u -

Rest Here
