SRU Request:

Impact: A regression was introduced between lucid and maverick that
causes firmware loading to fail with the RaLink RT2860 wireless adapter
on amd64.

Fix: The following patches backported from upstream address this issue.
The first two are included in >=2.6.38-rc1, the third is currently in
wireless-next-2.6.

Testcase: Tested by reporter and author of upstream patches (LP
#659143). Without these patches WLAN is not functional with RT2860 on
amd64 kernels. WLAN becomes functional with the patches applied.
