Bug#601416: newer firmware works with RT3072
I'm using linux-image-2.6-686 2.6.38+33 and an RT3072-based USB stick.
In particular, the one here <>).
lsusb describes it as:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:3072 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT3072 Wireless Adapter

Using the firmware package version 0.29, I get:

sudo /usr/sbin/hostapd -dd /etc/hostapd/24ghz.conf
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/24ghz.conf
[ 313.419902] phy1 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Current
firmware does not support detected chipset.
ioctl[SIOCSIFFLAGS]: No such file or directory
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
wlan2: Unable to setup interface.

Purging the firmware (dpkg -P firmware-ralink) and then copying
rt2870.bin from 2011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO to
/lib/firmware allows hostapd to start.
