Was unaware of that, can you give examples of the libraries/modules that 
get overwritten (for rollback/restore purposes)?

I have not seen any issues yet that I am aware of but once we get a fix 
for kmod-ath5k and I go back to that driver... I might?

will installing the kmod-ath5k after a removal of 
madwifi-hal-snapshot.rpm fix this?
