So, next command:

tree /sys/class/net/wlan0/../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:02:01.1/1.0

And look for the "driver" link there.  If that link is not present, the
ndiswrapper needs to be fixed.  Drivers must export the proper sysfs
interface, and getting the driver link isn't that hard.

On my system (airo and ipw cards), the drivers are:

|-- driver -> ../../../../../bus/pcmcia/drivers/airo_cs
|-- driver -> ../../../../bus/pci/drivers/ipw2100

(which map to /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2100, etc)
