Shouldn't do, but it's closed firmware, so who knows. On 2.6.24 there
is some bad bug in the WLAN stack that it starts spewing debug messages
for 11 hours every 22 hours or so. That's a known way it will eat more
It hasn't been observed on 2.6.28+. So if it helps people choose, it's
a good idea to use a distro that is supporting current kernels.
