Yep during various releases I used that workaround but once I
switched to minstrel rate choosing alg (that's the neme isn't it) the
problem gone away and i got allways a good connection for several
releases and many kernels tried; till this patch. If I revert this patch
the problem goes away completly and reliably (i'm using 2.6.29.4 with
the patch reveted) so something has clearly regressed for me.

You can see my coments ( ariveira ) on rt2x00 forums regarding the
issues you mention (low speed that gets fixed forcing the rate) in the
long thread about rt2500pci low rate[1].

Checking the message i see that it was 2.6.27 when i began using
minstrel and got a rock solid connection in 2.6.27.x, 2.6.28.x and
2.6.29 minus 64e1b00c974ddeae6a60ebb02e1c487371905cea

The problem is not that I get a low rate on connect (1Mbit) that i can
easily fix with iwconfig the problem is that with 54M (and 48M and the
like) connections I get a bumpy and low speed connection.

So I honesty think it is not the same issue and I hope you read this as
an interesting data point and not just as a duplicate.

Would the output of this script[2] for 2.6.29.4 with and without the
revert help you ?
