Well on i386 I can compile 7174-4 with 2.6.14 on i386 (athlon 700) and
it works perfectly.  Maybe amd64 has a problem that is different, since
I haven't tried that version on 2.6.14 on amd64.  I only keep the old
version since I have a TNT2.  I know 8xxx nvidia driver compiles with
2.6.14 just fine.

The 2.6. kernel recently got some ipw/ieee80211 code added to it which
now causes conflicts with the external code.

I think 2.6.15 might break ndiswrapper but I haven't quite followed the
arguments that involved some things breaking on lkml.  It might just
have been hypothetical breakage if a certain suggested change went in.
