 No Werner has made some good progress about this recently by transplanting
 the GTA02 Atheros WLAN driver on top of the Linux SDIO stack instead of
 the Atheros special one it was on top of until now.  So it should change
 some longstanding (not the firmware-related ones) issues around WLAN.

 We have the "native" WLAN driver in stable-tracking... part of the feeling
 that we're stuck on GTA03 is that all new work for even GTA01 and
 certainly GTA02 is happening up at stable-tracking.  And stable-tracking
 is not released as the new stable yet due to a couple of remaining issues
 (that I am sat working on now).  Once we clear those a lot of nice things
 (along with breakage no doubt) will suddenly appear in a new stable
