I just bought one of these cards. What kind of "upgrade" do you mean?
How can I tell if my card is one of those that is affected... I just
installed a new Pentium MB with the 2940AU, and the 2.1.5-RELEASE
GENERIC kernel will not recognize the device type (0x6178), and so will
not attach a driver. Of course, I can't mount my root partition now. :v(

Is a fix to 2.1.5R available yet? I'm holding off on 2.2 until RELEASE.
