Hm, you are right. The patch was based on the master branch of the
wireless-testing tree. It is my fault that I did not try it on wireless.git, sorry.

It fails to apply to the wireless.git tree because it depends on the following
change in wireless-testing.git:

    rt2x00: rt2x00pci_regbusy_read() - only print register access failure once

    BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1128840

    It appears that when this register read fails it never recovers, so
    I think there is no need to repeat the same error message ad infinitum.

Given the fact that this change is quite simple, it fixes a bug and it is marked
for stable, would it be possible to include that too into wireless.git?

Alternatively, I can rework my patch to be compatible with wireless.git, but
that will cause conflicts with the aforementioned change in wireless-testing.
