[rt2x00-users] Problems with the in-kernel rt2500pci driver being very slow and unstable

i've tried setting the rate manually, but experienced no change at all. For
the kernel thing, the kernel version strings are absolutely identical, so
it's a bit hard to differ between them; but I'm pretty sure it worked.
Anyway, I'll stay with the version, it just works too well to
change it again. :)

Best regards,
