I used the driver from the vanilla linux 2.6.18_rc7 sources w/ the latest
1.2 firmware from gentoo's portage. Modified zd_usb.c to include the IDs
for my stick:

        { USB_DEVICE(0x1435, 0x0711), .driver_info = DEVICE_ZD1211 },

dmesg | egrep "zd1211b? chip" says:
zd1211rw 1-7.4:1.0: zd1211 chip 1435:0711 v4330 high 00-10-a7 AL2230_RF
pa0 g--

It's been working for a couple of days now (connected to WEP protected AP)
without any stability issues so far. There are, however, a few two small
issues not mentioned in the 'Kown Issues' section:

1. As soon as the driver claims the device the status/TX/RX LED just shuts
off and never flashes or turns on anymore no matter if associated with AP or
2. I don't get any TX/RX statistics - $cat /proc/net/dev|grep wlan says:
wlan0: No statistics available.
