Right, I guess it's time I started maintaining this thread again.

It's important, and it's something that me and some other people were asking Huawei to release for a couple of weeks. It's the source code for the dhd_4330.ko module that I have spoke of many times. It was released in a form that is pretty awkward for us, and we fixed it. We can now build the Wi-Fi driver as part of the kernel as of about a hour or so ago
Why is this important? Because it gives us a lot more portability. Problems with using a dhd_4330.ko ripped out of the stock ROM began to arise. Now, we simply don't need to care about Wi-Fi as it's rebuilt every time to match the kernel for that build. This means we can happily update the kernel to any version and not have problems with DHD. This might also happen to fix the Wi-Fi causing a system lock. If not, who cares, we now have full control over all the code and can fix it ourselves.
Going forwards, there's a CM9 re-release imminent. Why CM9? Because there's a few specific issues with CM10 that need to be worked out -- it's all minor stuff, nothing is broken, but it makes more sense (at least to me) to fix the things that are in both CM9 and CM10, plus, people probably want something in their hands after such a wait. I know of 2 issues in CM9 and after that I'm pretty stuck on what to fix.
