CVS (STABLE_0_3) works for Madwifi/Atheros, but starts too late


I pulled down current CVS (well, 0.3 branch) and built/installed it..  And now..
Lo! and Behold!  NetworkManager works with my Atheros/Madwifi card/driver! 
Yes, it actually notices that the network attaches and gets me an IP Address. 
Quite nice.  I wont be able to fully test it with my WEP network for another 10
days, but what's in CVS is significantly improved over the 0.3.4 RPM in FC3.

Any chance you could tag a 0.3.5 release and push an update out to FC3?  (Not
that it matters to me; I built my own from the CVS code, but others might want

Nice work.  It's nice to have this all working now.  My only real comment:  It
would be nice to get NetworkManager (and hal, and dbus) all started much
earlier in the boot sequence.  As it is right now I've got a number of
boot-time services that fail to start because the network isn't there during
boot time.  In particular, ntpd fails to start properly without network (as
does mit-zephyr's zhm, but you probably don't care about that).
