Impact: The new r8187 driver (or better the ieee80211_rtl module duplicates
symbols from the kernel ieee80211 module. This prevents loading of that modules
and so prevents for example the ipw2200 driver from loading.
Fix: I submitted a patch that lets me load (unfortunately not test the rtl
modules) both drivers in parallel (and get me my wireless back). This defines
are essentially an extension to what has been already done for some other symbols.
Testcase: Without the patch, loading the ieee80211 module will complain that it
tries to export a symbol already exported by ieee80211_rtl. With it both stack
can be loaded at the same time without any warnings.
When all other means of communication fail, try words!
