OK it sounds like it would be worth testing the rawhide kernels for rt73usb even
within f7. The legacy rt73 does work nicely, and is stable for me in f7, but
does not support wpa_supplicant, though it will do WPA directly in the driver
with the right config I believe. Of course it needs compiling and installing for
each kernel. I guess rt2x00 will not be fully stable until F9 given that F8
release is only a few weeks away?

Thanks - sounds like further work needs to be done before trying this driver.
