As a stopgap measure until the WiFi module comes out, if I have a USB WiFi adaptor, and there is a Linux native driver for it, should I expect to be able to use it with the bug (presuming the driver will compile for the iMX31 and presuming I can incorporate that driver either into a tweaked kernel or into the rootfs from whence it could be modprobe'd)? In my case, I have a Linksys B/G module with a ralink chipset in it. There are drivers for it at http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/Support/Linux.html, which look promising, although I haven't yet attempted to build them for the iMX31.

Rereading your post, I noticed that you did indeed specify specific usb/wifi hardware. We can build the module for you if it is difficult for you to do.
