I have a patch ready and sent it to the kernel guys. The patch even fixes WPA
support, but the WPA IEs do not show up in the scan results. This makes WPA
connections with NetworkManager a bit painful, because you can only connect via
selecting "connect to other wireless network...". I tried to debug this, but
with no success so far. Could be a firmware limitation. Anyway, NM needs to use
wpa_supplicant back-end wext instead of prism54 now (and ap_scan=2 for hidden
networks). The change is trivial. Tambet, should I submit NM packages or do you
rather want to handle this yourself?
