I had no difficulties applying the Kismet patch to the Debian 2.6.9
kernel sources. The kernel built fine, and monitor mode works.
Scanning does not, work, though, and after running in monitor mode the
Airport modules need to be removed and re-inserted before wireless
will function normally. This is the same problem I've had for at least
a year. The "ksoftirqd" process eventually spirals out of control,
sending the load level sky-high.
