wireless: fix regression caused by regulatory config option
The default for the regulatory compatibility option is wrong; if you picked the default you ended up with a non-functional wifi system (at least I did on Fedora 9 with iwl4965). I don't think even the October 2008 releases of the various distros has the new userland so clearly the default is wrong, and also we can't just go about deleting this in 2.6.29... Change the default to "y" and also adjust the config text a little to reflect this. This patch fixes regression #11859 With thanks to Johannes Berg for the diagnostics Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <firstname.lastname@example.org>
