52	        These books attempt to give a description of the
53	        various subsystems that play a role in 802.11 wireless
54	        networking in Linux. Since these books are for kernel
55	        developers they attempts to document the structures
56	        and functions used in the kernel as well as giving a
57	        higher-level overview.
58	      </para>
59	      <para>
60		The reader is expected to be familiar with the 802.11
61		standard as published by the IEEE in 802.11-2007 (or
62		possibly later versions). References to this standard
63		will be given as "802.11-2007 8.1.5".

226	      <partintro>
227	        <para>
228	          You should read and understand the information contained
229	          within this part of the book while implementing a driver.
230	          In some chapters, advanced usage is noted, that may be
231	          skipped at first.
232	        </para>
233	        <para>
234	          This part of the book only covers station and monitor mode
235	          functionality, additional information required to implement
236	          the other modes is covered in the second part of the book.

244	          This chapter shall contain information on getting a hw

246	        </para>
247	        <para>
248	          Since it is required to allocate rates/modes before registering
249	          a hw struct, this chapter shall also contain information on setting
250	          up the rate/mode structs.
251	        </para>
252	        <para>
253	          Additionally, some discussion about the callbacks and
254	          the general programming model should be in here, including
255	          the definition of ieee80211_ops which will be referred to
