Default Bug#661306: closed by Ben Hutchings ( Bug#661306: firmware-realtek: rtl8192cu needs to be updated for changes in the Big Kernel Lock)

It needs to be updated to remove the BKL because it is trying to use it. It has already been updated by upstream and just needs to be recompiled in the Debian package. Please see the link in the original bug report.

Refers to out-of-tree driver.

No, only the out-of-tree driver has this problem.

No, there is no separate package of this driver.

I didn't realize there were two different drivers. I thought they were both
the same.

I have been having issues with the driver in the Debian package. I will do
some more extensive testing to try to isolate the issues and submit a new bug
in the next few weeks.
