Rebadged Senoa pcmcia cards with prism 3 chipset

We bought the wrong cards :(
We would have liked to have bought some 200mW Senoa PCMCIA cards.
The cards that we have are NL-2511CD PLUS EXT2 MERCURY. What I've found out
is that the NL means that they are rebadged. The EXT2 means that they have
external antenna connectors.
The MERCURY means that they are based on the PRISM 3 chipset, which StarOS
not have any support for. I saw a brief mention on a Seattle Wireless
that support for these may be underway. Is this so?
Can anyone also confirm that these are 100mW cards and are basically not as
good as the PRISM 2.5 based cards? The vendor we were using Solwise.co.uk
reporting poor availability for the 2.5 cards and that the wholesale
Intelsil have doubled since the PRISM 3 based cards have become available.
