I've finally found the time to test compile some of the last changes
made to rt2x00.git tree.

And, for the absolute first time, and even with the MCU errors, my
connection to my 11n WPA2 AP is working.

In fact, I'm writing this email over it, and even botheres to remove
the ethernet cord... (this is a tower pc)

so, I urge you to test out the kernel available in this tree, which is
very similar to wireless-testing:

Let me know the results you get.
