I have what appears to be an OEM version of the Zcom XI-300 which is identical to the normal version except for its device id. These were sold cheaply by TigerDirect a few years back.

If I add an entry for it to orinoco_cs.c, it works fine, but I'd like to see it added "officially" to the driver.

Here is the output from `cardctl ident`:

  product info: " ", "IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN/AP Card", ""
  manfid: 0xd601, 0x0003
  function: 6 (network)

After adding it to orinoco_cs.c and rebuilding the driver, it is detected correctly. Here is the dmesg output:
