Unfortunately, removing this file changes nothing. The rt2800usb still doesn't pick up the 148f:3070 VID as modinfo would show. That is with enabled rt307x support in config.mk and removed compat_autoconf.h in the compat directory. I'm on a Ubuntu 9.10 / 2.6.31-20 kernel. The problem appears to be deeper that I thought.
I don't mind manually modifying VID table to enable support for my devices, but this would mean a large number of users won't be able to take advantage of the new code via compat-wireless. I'm puzzled how results differ, you appear to be testing it on Fedora system with .2.6.32 and Ubuntu 2.6.31 fails. I'm running out of explanations.
