No accident -- the wireless bits in Fedora kernels are quite a bit
ahead of their nominal base version. Generally, they are synced with
the upstream wireless trees.

Fedora's 2.6.24.3 kernel.

OK. But then I'm back to my original question: why all those

Apr 1 11:03:56 notebook kernel: b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error
Apr 1 11:04:03 notebook kernel: printk: 26 messages suppressed.

in /var/log/messages?

Or if we're supposed to use the old 4.80.53 firmware, why the deprecated
message?


The upstream list probably won't respond: they obviously think only a
portion of the new driver was included - not the whole thing.

No idea.

Both firmwares are currently supported. The message is to encourage
you to prepare for the future. That is pretty much what "deprecated"
means. :-)

They should pull their ears past their sphincters...

Still there in 2.6.24.4-64.fc8. I'll bugzilla it.
