Edimax EW-7317Ug has the same chip:

climent@saeth:~/drivers/Driver$ strings ZD11U2K.sys | grep -i 1211
BFD: ZD11U2K.sys (.text): Section flag IMAGE_SCN_MEM_NOT_PAGED (0x8000000)
ZyDAS ZD1211 wireless lan Adapter

Taken from the driver downloaded from the edimax web page.

I actually had my hands on one of those, but it was the week after it was
released, and since i could not find any info from the net and not a single
reference on linux support i returned. I just added myself on the long waiting
queue to get a new one (and pick it up once is supported :). The price is 35e
so i guess is really cheap.

You're just jealous because I'm a real freak and you have to wear a mask.
