Ok WaveLAN PCMCIA works with 3.0.14

My old WaveLAN PCMCIA card (not IEEE) works with an unmodified RedHat 6.1 installation, which includes pcmcia-cs-3.0.14.

All I had to do to get it to work was add this line to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts:

  module "wavelan_cs" opts "do_roaming=1"

News Enabling roaming...

	With kernel 2.2.14+ and Pcmcia 3.1.2+, the "official"
way to do this is :
		iwconfig ethX mode Managed
	To disable roaming :
		iwconfig ethX mode Ad-Hoc

	As a side note, I did some extensive changes to the
Pcmcia driver (try to get it SMP compliant), which will be
going in 3.1.12. I can't test the roaming support, so somebody
will have to tell me if I did goof up...
