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 

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