It may also work for the 2.22

Ok, finally managed with the help of a friend to compile the vender driver with the mips 2.6.30 kernel i use here.
Here is a patch that was needed to get it finally compiled under 2.6.30.

Firmware Upload works !!!  and interface comes up as ath0.

But: looks like the driver doesnt work or like my WPA-Supplicant 0.6.9

Here is a Bootlog and outputs that come:  http://pastebin.com/m232e0dfa

Network Configuration:
cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-debug-level 3
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
        proto=WPA RSN
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
        group=CCMP TKIP

This configuration works flawless with an other machine and a ath5k mini-pci
card or on the same machine with an rt73usb stick running wpa-supplicant 0.6.9
and the wext driver.

Any Idea ?
