wifi bug in offical archlinux kernel

There is still some problems with the offical archlinux kernel that I have fould. This problem is not being able to connnect to the internet with my netgear wifi wg111v2 usb stick. This is cause of the mac80211 being set to pid data rate. I need it to be set to simple in order for me to use the offical archlinux kernel. For now I recomplied the archlinux kernel for with simple data rate. Its in the iso for those who are have trouble wifi drivers on kernel 2.6.25.

Here is the bug report: a fix for netgear wg111v2 not work on kernel 2.6.25.x (This bug is in the config upstream)
