Sounds like it is going to be a lot of work either way you go.  I would
suggest that you try the prism54 driver first.  It looks daunting at
first but I think they have upgraded it since I installed it so it may
be easier now that previously.  

This keeps you from having to run a custom kernel on your system which I
think is a good thing.  

If you find the prism54 driver less than acceptable then you can always
fall back to building a custom kernel and maintaining that setup.
