Supported card not recognized

Excuse me if this is not the right list to post this on.

I have an old card which has always worked with hostap but which is not
recogniced by the hostap driver on kernel 2.6, after patching it with this
little patch it works:

The card is a Conceptronic CON11CPro with this data:

PRODID_2="11Mbps Wireless LAN Card"

wifi0: PRI: id=0x15 v0.3.0

As I said it works perfectly with kernel 2.6 (tested up to 2.6.25) after
applying the patch so it would be good if this card would be recogniced in
the future by the kernel driver without needing the patch.
