Hi Greg,
I hadn't built this driver for a while & just noticed that it doesn't
built on 2.6.33-rc6.
Here's a minimal fix to at least get it going.

I didn't add the WEXT_SPY support as I've never used it & don't really

patch against 2.6.33-rc6 
Tested on fedora, and with the fix the card in my laptop works :)
