Tested over Apple iBook PPC32 with a zd1211 based dongle on a fresh new
2.6.18 mainline kernel.
Patch applies to kernel and compiles with no problems (without compiling
in-kernel zd1211 driver).
Modules then compiles and are loaded correctly.
The device associates to the AP over a 128bit wep protected network, but
seems unable to send data.
Trying to ping the AP or other clients returns "Destination Host
Dhclient too fails.
