Whoops... it seems that my hack doesn't fix the problem of outgoing 
traffic hosing the wi interface - next time I'll do more testing before 
making a post. However, without this patch my wi would lock up every 
now and than out of the blue, regardless whether it was associated to 
an AP or it was disconnected, and regardless whether there was any 
traffic flowing through it or not. The same card (Prism 2.5 mini-PCI) 
used to play nicely with 4.8-R, and works quite well with M$ also. 
There must be something rotten in the recent wi driver...

Cheers,

Marko
