Just read here:

David Gnedt is the author of the debian package.
We are testing the driver atm, it seems to be stable. David is now trying to combine it with titans kernel because when you drive through "bigger" cities the CPU is used 100% and we assume kismet doens't scan every minute due to less ressources. ;-)
