Wireless update 2003

On Tuesday afternoon I rebuilt a stock 2.4.22 kernel (+ ISL3890-0.1.0 patch, obviously) with /usr/bin/gcc32 and it can see the card fine, but I wasn't willing to take my laptop home on the bus, so it'll have to wait until tonight to get some proper testing.

At least with Linux, when something fails you can dig around and get it working. With XP (best desktop version of Windows or "Glorified service pack"[1] depending on your opinion) you're just plain f*cked.
