Default Bug#488854: ssb interferes with ndiswrapper

Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-686
Version: 2.6.25-2-686

I have a Dell 1390 wlan which I am using ndiswrapper with. When I blacklist
ssb and b43 to use ndiswrapper, ssb still gets loaded during the bootup. This
requires me to rmmod ssb, rmmod ndiswrapper, and then modprobe ndiswrapper
every time. I believe it's this same bug as here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/197558

To get around it I am using this fix:

I am creating a file /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper and putting the following script
in it:

#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ndiswrapper
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: S
# Default-Stop:
# Short-Description: enable to load ndiswrapper
# Description: enable to load ndiswrapper
### END INIT INFO

rmmod ohci_hcd
rmmod ssb
rmmod ndiswrapper
modprobe ndiswrapper
modprobe ssb
modprobe ohci_hcd

############# end file ############

sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper /etc/rc2.d/S99ndiswrapper

Please let me know if there is a better way to do this.
Thanks!
Chris
