Description of problem:
Using the arjanv 2.6.0 RPMs on a Gateway 600XL laptop runing Fedora
Core 1 the orinoco_cs loads but cannot attach to the card. No error
messages are produced. I was able to correct this by rebuilding the
source RPM but removing the patch that changed "-O2" to "-Os" in the
main kernel Makefile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install arjanv 2.6 RPM
2.Try to load orinoco_cs


Actual Results:  The driver loads but does not attach to the wireless card

Expected Results:  The driver should have attached to the wireless card.

sigh this sounds like a nasty driver bug; this driver breaks like this
if gcc has even slightly different optimisations.... more like a
driver bug than gcc bug ;(

cause found and fixed now
(typing over a wireless connection with orinoco right now)
