WPA problems with PS3 Linux

I was getting annoyed that WPA2 didn't work out of the box in Yellow Dog Linux, so I started to diagnose what is the problem. First I setuped seperate Linux kernel module building environment so I could compile newest ps3_gelic module in isolation. After long hours of debugging I think that ps3_gelic or gelic_wireless is working correctly. The problem is either Linux Wireless Extension userspace glue or with userspace applications. After all this seems to be problem with 64 bitness and inability of the tools to handle it correctly. I think there might be some hacks on x86-64 to get it working but those are probably not present on Cell (or powerpc arch within Linux kernel).
