OK. You might still run into issues due to the old kernel (2.6.32) that you are
using. I do not know how to get around that. Since that kernel version a lot of
APIs have changed inside the kernel, and it may be that it is simply impossible
to get a recent version of rt2x00 compiled on that version.
