I wouldn't go for an android driver,
That driver doesn't have cfg80211.
It has only WEXT, and WEXT scanning(iwlist eth0 scan) doesn't work
because the scanning method is non-standard(iwpriv)
It could be modified to support scanning, but then what if a stack like
SHR or FSO start depending on libnl for wifi?
I think other drivers like wl1271 are better, they should be more
standard as they are integrated in the linux kernel.
wl1271 even supports AP mode.
wl1271 also has a redistributable firmware now.
This module adds support for wireless adapters based on TI wl1271 and
TI wl1273 chipsets. This module does *not* include support for wl1251.
For wl1251 support, use the separate homonymous driver instead.
Does the chip need to have android support too?
