FS#2225 - abandon wireless backports

since the kernel is now updated regularly it would be convenient to switch to it’s in-tree wireless drivers, and abandon backports for good. mixing new wireless drivers with older kernels is generally a bad idea.

i have witnessed at least one situation (on a 64bit PC) where backports driver performed worse than the one built into kernel

This would make it impossible to update drivers in stable release branches.

doesn't the stable release gets updated kernel too?
