net-wireless/ndiswrapper-1.44 has been released with support for the upcoming 2.6.22 version of the Linux kernel. However, the ebuild checks for the NET_RADIO kernel build option, which is to be replaced by WLAN_80211.
A proposed ebuild is on the way.

This ebuild checks for the kernel build option "WLAN_80211" or "NET_RADIO" depending on whether the kernel version is 2.6.22 or not. It works with current release candidates and will surely work with releases.

Tidied ebuild. Adds support for "release candidate" versions.
I use an RTL8187 with ndiswrapper & WPA. WLAN_80211 is not required.
$ grep WLAN /usr/src/linux-2.6.22-rc2-git5/.config
# CONFIG_WLAN_PRE80211 is not set
# CONFIG_WLAN_80211 is not set
$ grep WIRELESS /usr/src/linux-2.6.22-rc2-git5/.config
# CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_SIERRAWIRELESS is not set
From ntoskernel.h in ndiswrapper-1.45_rc3, it looks like the 2.6.22 kernel
option needed is CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT:
#if defined(CONFIG_NET_RADIO) && !defined(CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT)
#warning "wirelss devices are not supported by this kernel"
Thanks, I have included most of the changes in 1.45.
No need to make the check for WIRELESS_EXT conditional as it has been around for quite some time. It is the NET_RADIO that has been removed in 2.6.22.
