This is true. It should be a minor matter to make it *compile* on solaris since it works on other true-nixes like *bsd... But read on.

Heres the real crux - I know *nothing* about how solaris does drivers, and if they might support rfmon, and how.

Indeed I would not. Diffs are good.

The course of action you should pursue, I think, is to first get manual control and tcpdump working in rfmon on your system, and then tell me how you did it. The quickest thing to try is "tcpdump -y" on your interface and see what DLTs it lists. If it lists an 802.11 DLT, then we're significantly far along already - the code to set a DLT is already done. Then, figure out if that actually does something (tcpdump and generate traffic with other cards). If it does, you're in even more luck. Then, figure out how to control the channel- first step would be to identify some command-line tool equivalent to iwconfig, make sure it works while you have an 80211 DLT sniff running in tcpdump, then figure out what ioctls it uses and let me know.
