hi sascha -- 

yes.  i think we hope there won't actually be any more of those, but
if there are, that patch will be there.  current and future releases
get the patch for free, since it's upstream.  (thank you)


p.s.  somehow the git hash i pasted above is incorrect.  the correct
cherry-pick was this one:
 commit 6bdbdbf4a151a3a1333818cd17a7d7795e936041

    libertas: Add libertas_disablemesh module parameter to disable mesh 
    This allows individual users and deployments to disable mesh support at
    runtime, i.e. without having to build and maintain a custom kernel.
    Based on a patch by Paul Fox <pgf at laptop.org>.
