Your timing is good. I'm in the process of finishing up 3.10 and was
looking at these just yesterday.

I'd like to unify on one fragment that isn't obselete, out of date
and otherwise misleading.

I like iwlegacy as a fragment and name that you have here. As part of
this series, we should also delete the old iwglan .. I can only hold
them around for so long, and I won't delete it from the old trees, just
3.10 and 3.11.

iwlwifi looks a bit .. thin ..  at the moment. But we can address that

So on second thought, I'll take care of the deletion as part of my merge,
and unless I hear other objections, I'll pull this in tomorrow.
