    It may have partly been a problem of having half of softmac and half
    devicescape. I'm not entirely sure what udev did.

    I tried a patch for the Sonic Silicon that was posted and I turned off
    all the configuration for the softmac driver.

    It isn't crashing right now but 802.11 isn't working either. I may get
    a chance this weekend to try some things with it, and some different
    firmware sets.

    If the new bcm43xx drivers do not support 802.11b at all and never will,
    I missed the documentation. Someone should add that to Kconfig.
