     atu -- Atmel at76c50x 802.11B wireless network interfaces

     atu* at uhub? port ?

     The atu driver provides support for wireless network adapters based
     around the Atmel at76c503, at76c503a, at76c505, and at76c505a USB

     Supported features include 802.11 and 802.3 frames, power management,
     BSS, IBSS, ad-hoc, and host-based access point mode.

     The atu driver encapsulates all IP and ARP traffic as 802.11 frames, how-
     ever it can receive either 802.11 or 802.3 frames.  Transmit speed is
     selectable between 1Mbps fixed, 2Mbps fixed, 2Mbps with auto fallback,
     5.5Mbps, 8Mbps, or 11Mbps depending on your hardware.

     Four different radio chipsets are used along with the device, each
     requiring a different firmware.

     By default, the atu driver configures the card for BSS operation (aka in-
     frastructure mode).  This mode requires the use of an access point (base
