If you'd actually read their home page you'd see this:

"open80211s has been accepted in mainline Linux kernel and is included
in  release 2.6.26...."

In other words, it's already in your favorite distro.

If your chipset is supported, you can try it.  Then you can say "this
works for me with distro d chipset c" or "I had to do x or y to get
this to work" instead of "have you heard of this?"
