[rt2x00-users] [rt2x00] rt3070 fails to initialize with rt2800usb

I've been monitoring the community's work for the rt3070 chips and especially your recent success towards improving the driver.

I would like to share something with the rt2x00 development team which may or may not be known.

The rt3070 card I own fails to initialize with the latest (working) compat-wireless release. When I plug the USB card, rt2800usb doesn't automatically load and when I manually modprobe the driver it does not recognize it as well.

Looking in to the rt2800usb.c file I found the 'problem'. The VIDs aren't properly set. Mine shows 148f:3070. Although a line is included in the "#ifdef CONFIG_RT2800USB_RT30XX", the module won't initialize the card.

I fixed the problem by adding my device here:

	/* Ralink */
	{ USB_DEVICE(0x148f, 0x2770), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt2800usb_ops) },
	{ USB_DEVICE(0x148f, 0x2870), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt2800usb_ops) },
	/* Samsung */ 

which now looks like:

	/* Ralink */
	{ USB_DEVICE(0x148f, 0x2770), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt2800usb_ops) },
	{ USB_DEVICE(0x148f, 0x2870), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt2800usb_ops) },
        { USB_DEVICE(0x148f, 0x3070), USB_DEVICE_DATA(&rt2800usb_ops) },
	/* Samsung */

This pertains to the rt3071 as well.

Regards.
