List of working HostAP Cards?

Is there a list of working HostAP cards available somewhere? If so, you
can probably add my PCMCIA card to the list. It's an Airlink+ WLC010
The card works fine. It connects to my WAP with and without WEP enabled
(on both ends). I haven't actually run it in HostAP mode (I just wanted
to get away from those gawdaweful wlan-ng drivers and to something with
wireless extensions support), but can if it is important for some list.
The only problem I'm having with the card is it doesn't give me any
signal strength. Whenever it is polled, I get this in my syslog:
Jan 6 18:59:37 dell kernel: wlan0: hostap_get_wireless_stats() called while atomic - skipping signal quality query
I can live with that (wlan-ng did give me signal strength, but no wep,
and no wireless extensions).
Other info about the card:
root at dell rob # cardctl ident && cardctl info
product info: "INTERSIL", "HFA384x/IEEE", "Version 01.02", ""
manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
function: 6 (network)
Hope this helps somebody out there... :-)
