They provide binary driver built from Marvell provided sources. Older 
version of sources are available for download on SparkLAN website. No 
information about license inside.

OLPC project use 88w8388 connected to USB bus. Holger Schurig works on 
adding 88w8385 support into their driver (which evolved from one of 
version of that 'no license' one). From my informations this chipset can 
also be connected via SPI and there are companies which produce it in SMT 

http://www.embeddedworks.net/newsite/WLAN/oem_SMD_80211g.html lists few 
modules which are 9.6 (L) x 9.6 (W) x 1.7 (H) [mm] and support 802.11g
