I was able to get it working with the patch.  The patch it not a part of
the FC5 rpms, but should be (at least a build option).  I know the patch
isn't desired in upstream.  But if so, then NM shouldn't lie and say
that ndiswrapper (etc) is "fully-supported":

<information> wlan0: Device is fully-supported using driver

Perhaps a "wlan0: Device 'ndiswrapper' is not supported due to lack of
WEXT compliance" message would be better.
