I noticed that 128 bit thing too after I did the 1.3 aiport update
from MacOS (it updated the card's firmware). No clue if the driver
is right about it or not.

The ethX by default can be changed with the eth=0 module option. It's
done that way in the original driver, I didn't change it.

I removed the "enc" one that I added previously to avoid diff'ing
too much from the original source. You pass most options via
iwconfig. Just make sure to have the interface up as I keep the
card powered down when the interface is down to save power.
