I have the same NIC here and I had it working ( allthough there were 
some issues ...  :  after some uptime, say a week, the NIC didn't react 
anymore so you had to unload the kernelmodule most of the time resulting 
in a system-hang :S ). I used it for adhoc-connections only so I'm not 
sure if it would have the same problems, but at least I could scan. 
Anyway, you're free to use the kernel-module I build if you want to :
