Madwifi Drivers

Hello everybody,

I've been working lately with the madwifi project drivers and encountered some odd things.
Though I'm new to driver and kernel programming, I know that every driver has its init_module, called upon loading the driver to the kernel, and its exit_module called upon unloading. I didn't manage to find the init_module in the madwifi driver code, and i wonder if someone knows why this driver doesn't have such a module?

thanks a lot!

Omer!

Re: Madwifi Drivers

I do not know if you have seen it, but Linux Device Drivers Jonathan Corbet, Alessandro Rubini, and Greg Kroah-Hartman is an excelent reference.  Chapter two asserts that the use of those functions is optional.
