WIFI rtl8188 not working with 2.72

Hello,

I installed the newest 2.72. I had my system up and running with the 2.6 version. My dongle worked perfectly. With the new version the follwing message comes up in dmesg:

usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 7 using dwc_otg

Seems like the driver is not compiled anymore. Would be great if this dongle could work again. Any hints?
