There are patches to add scanning to orinoco 0.13-based drivers (ie,
kernel) but unless they've been updated they probably won't apply to
your new kernel driver code since its been reorganized and elements
renamed.  Google can probably find it if it exists.

Orinoco-cs 0.15rc2 (or CVS head) supports scanning, and sort-of supports
rfmon (still need patches for kismet, for example), but seems to have 
significant stability issues in my testing, and its still very beta.

stimuli, is now used solely to conceal contempt and fear from fellow human 
beings." -- The Onion
