I really can't say I've had that much luck. It worked fine doing yum
upgrades, but slowed down to a crawl accessing some sites like
bugzilla.redhat.com. Switching back to rt73, or accessing the same site
with my laptop worked just fine.

I'm not sure what information one can draw from that, but, as usual,
trying out version+1 of the kernel is more useful than reporting kernel
bugs.
