Here is the text about this option:
For now we leave an option to enable the old module parameter,
ieee80211_regdom, and to build the 3 old regdomains statically
These old static definitions and the module parameter is being
scheduled for removal for 2.6.29. Note that if you use this
 you won't make use of a world regulatory domain as its pointless.
If you leave this option enabled and if CRDA is present and you
use US or JP we will try to ask CRDA to update us a regulatory
domain for us.

suggestions? should i disable it for next release? I don't use this roaming 
stuff at all.
Thomas you could add your wireless stuff to testing too now.
