DO NOT PUT THE PATCH BELOW INTO OE. It is to show the problem.

I figured out one of the problems I reported to the zaurus-devel list,
namely that of why wep wasn't working on a cf card with tosa. The
reason was that in 2.6.29 ieee80211 changed name to lib80211, meaning
that task-base-wifi the following didn't load the appropriate modules
for wep.

The following patch is probably *not* what is wanted, however, it
works, for 2.6.29 and above, BREAKING 2.6.28 and below. I include it
only to show what the problem is (and one solution, but as several
machines are on pre-2.6.29, it would cause the same problem I'm having
for them.) I'm suspecting that compatibility-providers.conf may be
what I'm looking for, but so far asking on IRC, I can't tell how to
use it properly, or how to specify these modules for only 2.6.29 and
above. (My limited experiments have not found the proper way to
specify it yet.)
