Manfid typographical error in hostap_cs.c for Dlink dwl-650p?

I cannot get my dwl-650p working on Debian Etch ("modprobe hostap_cs"
does not create an extra interface), and I think that this might be due
to a possible error in the manfid for my card. "pccardctl ident"

Socket 0:
  product info: "D-Link", "DWL-650 Wireless PC Card RevP", "ISL37101P-10", "A3"
  manfid: 0x000b, 0x7110
  function: 6 (network)

To find out if my card is supported in linux, I read the source code in
the linux- kernel that I download from The ids
in linux- start:

        { 0x000b, 0x7110 } /* D-Link DWL-650 Rev. P1 */,
        { 0x000b, 0x7300 } /* Philips 802.11b WLAN PCMCIA */,
        { 0x0101, 0x0777 } /* 3Com AirConnect PCI 777A */,
        { 0x0126, 0x8000 } /* Proxim RangeLAN */,
        { 0x0138, 0x0002 } /* Compaq WL100 */,

while the ids in linux-

        PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD(0x000b, 0x7100),
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD(0x000b, 0x7300),
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD(0x0101, 0x0777),
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD(0x0126, 0x8000),
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD(0x0138, 0x0002),

Then I notice that these two lists are identical except for the first
entry, which is my card! I also think that the dwl-650p is supported
because of previous posts to this mailing list, such as:

Could this problem be the reason why "modprobe hostap_cs" does not
create an extra interface?
