There don't exist any working kernel patches (for recent kernel versions). I'll 
tag the bugreport as wont-fix. Either someone else provides a working patch or 
it find its way to mainline....

Update: looks like it's working with 2.6.21 again according to http://

| This is just an upgrade to the changes of 2.6.21

So we should check it out with 2.6.22....

Looks like orinoco_cs lost support for monitor mode due to changes in driver 
API, see:

Workaround is using hostap_cs instead if possible. I could not find any other 
possible solution, sorry - deferring the bug therefore.

See bugreport via mail by Hans Klausmann, looks like orinoco driver (e.g. for 
RTL8180 card) does not provide monitor mode. Make sure it's present.
