airo_mpi implements the ioctl used by ACU to communicate with the card,
so ACU too can be used to configure the card when airo_mpi is loaded.
But, this possibility is not really interesting, because all
the required configuration can already be achieved with iwconfig. ACU adds
nothing except an ugly GUI :-)
As a side note : please DO NOT try to flash your card firmware in this
configuration (ACU + airo_mpi). I already got the report of someone who
toasted his card, while trying this operation. I disabled this *feature*
in recent versions. But I repeat myself : flash your firmware ONLY under
Windows if you want to be safe.
