Prism 2/2.5/3 support in the orinoco driver (HERMES_PRISM) is disabled
by default as of Linux 2.6.35 . As PCI_HERMES depends on
HERMES_PRISM, this module was not built.
The hostap driver provides better support for Prism 2/2.5/3-based PCI
devices, including firmware downloading and WPA support. Consider using
the available hostap_pci module.
