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.
