Looking at the http://wiki.fon.com/wiki/La_Fonera_2.0 OLPC plugin
tarball, it does this using libertas/usb8xxx and the firmware we
redistribute, so it wouldn't be surprising that it's compatible.
I don't understand what chipset they're shipping that can use that
firmware, though -- it'd have to be the 8388, but the same page says
Fon 2.0 uses an Atheros NIC. I think maybe they're suggesting it'll
work if you plug a USB 8388 part in..
