Yes: the mac80211 driver does work sometimes but is also broken at other
times and I would definitely advise that non-developers don't use it 
yet. I'm surprised that fc7 chose to ship zd1211rw-mac80211 with the 
current state of mac80211 development (still lots of reworking going on, 
a decent amount of driver instability, ...)

No: the firmware is the same as the one shipped in the vendor driver, 
and both drivers do upload firmware to the device.
