patched kernel

I managed to compile the 2.6.19 kernel for the gumstix and apply the click patch. I ended up going manually through a number of gumstix patches for the 2.6.18 kernel and throwing out the hunks that were already patched. I then tried to run the config file and pipe the output to click. That failed miserably as it relies on the "wlanconfig" tool from madwifi to create all the devices. I tried compiling madwifi tools and putting them on gumstix, but to no avail, as wlanconfig did not work with the hostap driver. I will try to read the config script next and do all the steps with the hostap configuration tools (or wireless tools).
