Well there is a difference between there being no support as in not even
attempting to attach to the card or needing some special driver changes to
have it work which hasn't been attempted yet and the driver having the intention
of supporting the card but there possibly being a bug somewhere. With 3.6 the
situation is the latter case so we need something to go on to try and fix it
besides "it doesn't work". If you see messages in the dmesg that indicate an
invalid MAC addy then I'd like to see the dmesg and preferably a full dmesg.
