Would anyone in the know care to speculate if iwlwifi is going to work
anytime soon? It's been in the kernel for a month or so (at least it
feels like a month) and has never worked for me and many others. From
the kernel changelogs, it doesn't seem like much is happening with it.
Can people that have been having problems with iwlwifi try with today's
rawhide kernel (2.6.20-1.3056.fc7)?  I've had it work for me now on 4
laptops connecting to both an unencrypted and an encrypted (WEP) access
point where previously that was nowhere near the case ;)
Not sure if this is a driver problem, or something else.
I'm still having problems with the hardware kill switch:

iwlwifi: Intel(R) Wireless Link driver for Linux, 0.0.11k
iwlwifi: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
iwlwifi: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
iwlwifi: Radio Frequency Kill Switch is On:
iwlwifi: MAC is in deep sleep!
iwlwifi: MAC is in deep sleep!
iwlwifi: MAC is in deep sleep!

No matter how i turn the actual switch the same messages are logged when I modprobe iwlwifi.

What hardware is this with?  Does it work if you start out with the kill
switch in the enabled position?

It is a "noname" - an OEM Compal GL31 laptop.
I have not tried to reboot with the switch in both positions after the last kernel upgrade, but I did this several times with older kernels.

I'll try as soon as I get home.
