You will need a development snapshot out of CVS with kernels >= 2.6.19
This is the link to the daily snapshot for rt2500: - use it in stead of the 1.1.ob4 release.

I've had similar errors on FC6 after upgrading to 2.6.19 kernel. I was using the release version of the driver, but when I used the latest CVS intead it, worked a treat.
