It doesn't matter which kernel it is used on, the important thing is
that I know that the package works, meaning the firmware (ABI version 1
will suffice, there is no driver with version 2 anyway) is undamaged and
works. So simply install the new firmware, (re)load the driver and see
if it still connects to an AP.
