Thank you for the link. But as I said, I had problems even with the compat-old version so that patching the old original kernel to support uw2453 seemed less of a hassle (in terms of getting it to work).
Also, it looks like that for the problems I mentioned there are already a number of smaller patches addressing it on the linux-wireless mailing list. I haven't taken a closer look but it might be that those patches have been applied to compat-wireless already and simply aren't included in the compat-old package.
