No, this bug still plagues every mainstream Linux installation that exists... :(
The patch available is a hack and is not upstream.

However, on a test of recent F11 builds, on both XO-1 and XO-1.5,
where the laptop would repeatedly connect and disconnect from the
network through NetworkManager, this bug did not appear. Instead, the
tests were halted after several hours due to other long standing wifi
issues (in libertas, firmware or wifi hardware).

On OLPC OS 8.2 the equivalent test reproduces the issue in just a few
minutes, after an average of 30 (IIRC) connect/disconnect cycles.

So I think it's OK to forget about this for now - the bug can still
happen, but for whatever reason, it doesn't seem to crop up any more.
