No need for the attachment, I have that madwifi via Livna (RPM)  and
its 'ok' but is very flaky. It either doesn't resume after suspend, or
stalls the machine on suspend. And randomly doesn't work on some
boots.

I was going to pull in .27 from rawhide, but I saw it was pulling in
some packages for update which I was not familiar with so I aborted
that process. May have to give it a try again.
