It should be there already, both the mac80211 version and the previous
version.  You may wish to blacklist the one that you don't want.

I think the zd1211rw and softmac drivers ought to be disabled in the
.config for FC7 release, else both drivers get loaded on boot. I also
think the iwlwifi driver should be added to the rawhide kernel, as the
worst case scenario is that already-not-working hardware does not
work. Best case scenario is that the hardware just works.
