Orinoco Wireless driver bugs in 2.5.17

I see two undesireable behaviours with the Orinoco drivers in

1. With a compaq WL110 in a WL210 PCI<->PCMCIA bridge, I see many

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth1: transmit timed out
Tx timeout! Resetting card. ALLOCFID=00c0, TXCOMPLFID=00bf, EVSTAT=808a

messages, and see no activity on any other stations.

2. With a Netgear MA401, every now and then the card goes into bozo
mode, when iwconfig reports:

eth0 IEEE 802.11-DS Nickname:"piggle"
Mode:Managed Frequency:42.9497GHz Tx-Power=15 dBm
RTS thr:off
Link Quality:241 Signal level:136 Noise level:107
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Note the Frequency there. A `cardctl reset' fixes the problem.
