Hello Xose, Luis and John,

I did the same thing Xose did and came up with even more new IDs. The Windows 
driver specifically supports only RT73 chipsets and I did my best to ensure 
that these are truly RT73 devices.

There is no guarantee that the Linux driver will perfectly support those new 
devices, but I think most should just work fine. If they don't the user at 
least knows where to file the bug report.

I may be wrong but at least for me this concept worked - I bought an 
RT2070L based device which is currently not supported by rt2800usb, the 
fact that the driver got loaded pointed me into the right direction 
(http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5245&hilit=rt2070).

I'll post the patch (new ids and some cleanups) if everybody's okay with it.

regards,
Simon Raffeiner
