 Replying to [comment:1 Quozl]:

 described here http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XO-1.5_Wireless_Test_Report ...
 mac80211 requires work.
 This was with os207 on the XO-1.5 -- that build does not have the new
 "thin firmware" described in the "XO-1.5_Wireless_Test_Report"  -- it only
 has the old libertas firmware as used on the XO-1 (which does provide mesh
 on the XO-1).  I take it that the old firmware does not do mesh with the
 88W8686, even though that new chip is similar to the previously used
 88W8388 chip.
