Yes that would be an opinion if the orinoco driver actually fully
the complete set of instructions that Agere provide.
Even with the integration of the latest orinoco version, the current driver
is not able to support scanning and doesn't support wpa_supplicant...
Upstream Orinoco has supported scanning for quite a while. Dave Jones
merged that support into the upstream kernel sometime around 2.6.14.
Furthermore, if you really want _everything_ that the orinoco has to
offer, don't use the 'orinoco' driver, use the 'hostap' driver in
kernels. That supports both Master mode _and_ wpa_supplicant. In fact,
if I plug in my WaveLAN card, hostap seems to be the default driver
anyway, not orinoco.
What other bits are missing that aren't provided by hostap?
