I'm happy to report that the next release of "driverloader" will support
Marvell chipsets, or at least the one in my DWL-G630 :-).  The support
guys were kind enough to let me try a snapshot labeled "1.64p1", and it
works like a champ.  The new release also addresses a number of driver
initialization issues that were a major hurdle in my particular case.

Disclaimer: I have no inside knowledge of Linuxant's release schedule
and/or version numbering scheme, which is to say I have no idea when the
next release is going to be officially available, nor what the version
number of that release will be.
