I will change that.

That's ok for me. Would it be possible to build the rt2x00 and rt2570
packages? I guess a new upload of linux-modules-extra-2.6 will have to
go through NEW, so better add more modules at the same time.

This module is a driver for wireless cards, so I guess it is useful on
most architectures but sparc and s390. I know it has been used on i386,
amd64, powerpc and sparc.

I will upload them in the next few hours.
