Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 802028
Fedora 16 kernel 3.2 use mix of kernel 3.3 WiFi stack and compat-wireless but some headers missing

Description of problem:
Please look at https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=543745&aid=3493384&group_id=75380#artifact_comment_6211863 for the detailes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.2.* kernels (3.2.6, 3.2.7, 3.2.9 tried).
The compat-wireless mechanism in Fedora is being dropped as soon as F16 rebases to the 3.3 kernel. I don't see us investing much effort to fix this when it's going to be removed completely.
When it should happen?
(In reply to comment #2)
> When it should happen?
Around the time the 3.3.1 kernel is released.
Ok, thank you for the info.
I've found 3.3 kernel from rawhide is stable enough for me.
I think then this bug may be closed as WONTFIX.
kernel-3.3.0-4.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository.
Please retest with this update.
This update works also. Thank you.
