Actually, I entirely
agree with you.
Maybe I wasn't clear enough.
What I was trying to say is that, ideally, I want the reltek driver to become
part of the Linux kernel
(instead of the RTL8192E driver that is currently there). Then everyone can benefit from it.
Imho, the guys who are maintaining the RTL8192E driver in the current linux kernel (currently in the staging area, at least in the ubuntu image) have two options:
1) fix their driver, presumably with our help, as I guess it works for them
2) scrap it and take the realtek driver.
And imho, option 2 is the best one. Unless there are some licensing issues (that I am not aware of) I don't see any reason to spend time fixing a broken driver if there is a perfectly working one available.
So if anyone reading this thread knows the guys working on the RTL8192E driver in the linux kernel, maybe you could put some pressure on them.

That was me actually
. Trying to push it in several lists. No response from the kernel folks though
