original ZyDAS ZD1211 driver under the GNU Public License.

The full source of the original ZYDAS driver is available from
http://zd1211.wiki.sourceforge.net/VendorDriver

The GPL-licensed header files used to produce the firmware blobs are also
present in this distribution. See the COPYING file for the full license terms.
