Good point  :)

I understand some patches to airo.c were added in 2.6.9 (so the beta1
kernel didn't contain them).  I'm just trying to stay informed so I can
watch out for drivers and know when RHEL 4 is released which drivers are
updated and which aren't.

An example of this in RHEL 3 is the speedstep driver.  It hasn't been
touched since early last year even in the latest quarterly updates. 
I've submitted a RFE to have the speedstep driver updated so it supports
the Centrino chipsets.
