No. Please see:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2004/8/27/303

As you can see I sent them a bug report once. It won't happen again in
the foreseeable future.

And as you also can see from the thread info on the left-hand bar of
that page nobody seemed to be interested in the problem. IIRC I could
not compile for weeks or perhaps even months a new 2.4 kernel version
because of the mentioned errors.

The site for the patch I used, IIRC:
<http://www.kismetwireless.net/download.shtml#orinoco2611>

wget http://www.kismetwireless.net/code/orinoco-2.6.12-rfmon-dragorn-1.diff

The md5sum for the latter that I have here is
41fb7cec09f4de93cd2432eb1aceba92

So if yours will be different you can let me know.

And I applied the patch to 2.6.12. Or better: I probably patched a
2.6.11 (tarball) source with patch-2.6.12.bz2, and then applied the
above orinoco patch. (Uncertainty because it's already a few weeks ago
I compiled this kernel ... )

And just in case it might help someone else:
The following snippet might serve as an example of how to compile this
more or less wifi ready patched source [Please check for yourself in
case I made any mistakes ... :) ... ]:

------------------------
tar xzvf linux-2.6.11.tar.gz
cd linux-2.6.11/
bzip2 -cd /path/to/patch-2.6.12.bz2 | patch -p1

[then applying the orinoco patch from above]

cp /boot/someconfig .
make oldconfig
fakeroot make-kpkg clean

time MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-4.0" fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=-somename --revision +anothername kernel_image

or

time MAKEFLAGS="CC=gcc-4.0" fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=+orinoco-patched --revision +050703 kernel_image
------------------------

HTH

Thanks for responding, Sven ... and yes: for your work, too :)

And sorry for refusing to play nice if things run ugly ..

Best Regards
Wolfgang
