It would be a little like that.

One thread of interest is Commit 
24a0aa212ee2 ("cfg80211: make WEXT compatibility unselectable") made it 
impossible to select the IPW2200. The patch to allow selecting the IPW2200, 
which automatically selects CFG80211_WEXT has been added to wireless-drivers, 
but it has not yet made it to mainline. Once it does, then choosing to build the 
IPW2200 will provide a workaround.

In my opinion, the need for the IPW2200 to have CFG80211_WEXT means that the 
original commit will likely be reverted, but your voice will help.

I use openSUSE 13.2, but I control my wireless with NetworkManager. For that 
reason, this is a non-issue for me.
