I did not reach that conclusion based on the mismatch message alone, but
by looking at what is supposed to happen *after* that mismatch message, and
that's when I saw that comment in the code. That comment is in the part
of the zd1211rw driver for handling or not-handling mismatches. It seems
that *some* mismatches are handled, but *some* mismatches are intentionally
not handled because they are considered too ugly.

Maybe the person who wrote that comment should come forward and explain what he
meant when he wrote it (assuming that person is still on the list), and clarify
that comment.
