This driver seems to work well, and it evidently fixes the problem I
earlier described in another email (Subj: Networking on Raspberry Pi
Model B).

The only trouble I had was that the new driver seems to require the
firware installed with the rtl8192cu driver. Thus I had to build and
install both drivers.  Could this new driver pull in the firmware without
the full rtl8192cu driver?
