Summary0005842: RTL8188EUS: New Wi-Fi drivers with monitor mode & frame injection
DescriptionA big range of chipsets using RTL8188EUS has got monitor mode & frame injection added.
In kernel, Larry Finger's (lwfinger) is included by default. (this has to be blacklisted)

root@kali:~/Desktop/rtl8188eus# modinfo r8188eu
filename: /lib/modules/5.3.0-kali2-amd64/kernel/drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/r8188eu.ko
firmware: rtlwifi/rtl8188eufw.bin
version: v4.1.4_6773.20130222

New aircrack-ng rtl8188eus, Spec:
root@kali:~/Desktop/rtl8188eus# modinfo 8188eu
filename: /lib/modules/5.3.0-kali2-amd64/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
version: v5.3.9_28540.20180627

Cons here is that our (aircrack-ng driver) is both new, supports later Android and it got penetration testing abilities.
It also supports a various more chipsets than the stand-alone 8188eu(.ko)

However, v5.3.9 branch is ready to be pushed, the newer ones has to wait until it's properly tested and patched up like v5.3.9.

Hold this until I've checked if I actually added the wrong blancklist driver (blacklisting my own module instead of kernel's (lwfinger) module.
