Just so you know, Damien no longer develops this driver, to quote from
an email to the freebsd-net mailing list

"I just don't want to hear complaints from users if it doesn't work.
I don't provide any "support" for the FreeBSD version of wpi(4)."

A shame but thats why the new driver is being developed. (hope it gets
backported to 6.x)
