This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    staging: refresh TODO for rtl8712

to my staging git tree which can be found at
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging.git
in the staging-linus branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will hopefully also be merged in Linus's tree for the
next -rc kernel release.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: staging: refresh TODO for rtl8712

People should not waste time and energy working on this staging driver.
At least four drivers were written for this hardware:
 https://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=138358275410975
And there is a replacement using the kernel wireless stack at:
 https://github.com/chunkeey/rtl8192su
Also a fullmac/cfg80211 driver(r92su) is available.
