Talking about wireless driver updates - has anybody looked at the RaLink
wireless driver? It's in the newer EeePC's (901 and 1000), and it
actually has a driver from the company which the comments make clear is
GPLv2 too, no apparent oddness or anything:

http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/drivers/2008_0708_RT2860_Linux_STA_v1.7.0.0.tar.bz2

which admittedly apparently has some trivial problems (with a trivial
patch as seen at

http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=195429

I'd love to have that one working, since I have the hardware, and it's
actually reasonable (much more so than the original EeePC, in fact). What
channels should I go through? Is anybody working on integrating it
already?

(Ivo van Doorn added to Cc, since he seems the go-to guy for the rt2x00
driver in the tree, and may have some input).
