quote of IvD:
*  Ivo van Doorn (aka IvD)
   o Source-rebuild rt2x00 main developer
   o rt2400/rt2500 Source Code fixes and enhancements 

"The legacy drivers: rt2400, rt2500, rt2570, rt61 and rt73 will _never_ be
merged with the kernel tree since they do not comply with any of the kernel
coding rules.
The design is ugly, it is not portable and is buggy on SMP and PREEMPT enabled
machines, and is even more buggy on big endian machines.

rt2x00 already is in the wireless-dev tree and will be merged upstream when
rt2x00 and the dscape stack are stable. When they are it would also finally
resolve the solution that rt2x00 is not working with Fedora Core kernels because
he Fedora Core kernels are so heavily patched that the API of certain structures
have changed and external module compilation will always fail. "

Answear about how much time it will take will follow...
