This driver uses the kernel's mac80211 subsystem.

In order to use this driver, you will need a firmware image for it. You can obtain the microcode from:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi.

The firmware is typically installed in /lib/firmware. You can look in the hotplug script /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent to determine which directory FIRMWARE_DIR is set to when the script runs.

If you want to compile the driver as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want), say M here and read Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt. The module will be called iwlwifi.
