    I've already submitted a bug on this problem, but since doing that,
I think I know what the problem is and need some feedback if the problem
is what I think it is. I have a wireless network card runs off the
prism54 module perfectly. I've got the latest kernel and patches
(FC5-test3) and all that. However when I boot the module is loaded, and
it attempts to get an IP adress from the AP and fails. Once logged in I
have to 'su -' and 'rmmod prism54' and 'modprobe prism54'. I assume
hotplug does all its wonderful magic because then it grabs an IP and
starts working.

Is there a way to have it turn on debugging output from the driver
loading? It would likely help in seeing what happens the first time when
it fails and the next time when it succeeds after boot.
