rtl8192e: why do we need two drivers

Hi

I suspect the reason why we have two drivers is that Realtek choose to 
develop out of tree drivers instead of collaborating with the kernel 
developers to get proper in kernel drivers.  I do not see the logic in 
their doing this, it does the reputation of their company no good and it 
is more trouble for everyone involved.

This is the subject of bug:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16594

I hope that there are people who know how to do these things who will 
garner any information they need from the working Realtek driver to make 
the kernel RTL8192E driver work properly.

Regards

John
