Subject: Anyone working on ral(4) update?

I just got a brand new A-Link WL54PC Cardbus Wlan-adapter which is not
recognized by NetBSD-current:

(manufacturer 0x0, product 0x0) Ralink Technologies product 0x0302 (miscellaneous network) at cardbus0 function 0 not configured

The site

mentions that OpenBSD-current has support for some new chipsets. Is
anyone doing or considering to do a update from latest OpenBSD's
sources to NetBSD?

OpenBSD's snapshot CD identifies the card like this:

ral0 at cardbus0 dev 0 function 0: irq 11, address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
ral0: MAC/BBP RT2661B, RF RT2527

Right now I can't test if this card really works in obsd, since I
don't have wlan network here.
