Subject: crash in ieee80211_rate with linux-2.6.24-rc3

I'm trying to get the iwl3945 driver working on my laptop, using the
latest kernels.

Upon boot, when udev loads the driver, it does not create the proper
device.  This is the contents of the kernel log:

[   29.694882] iwl3945: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

[   30.374179] ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
[   30.376401] ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'CCMP'

I suspect loading ieee80211_crypt after iwl3945 has something to do
with it.  Do I need to build ieee80211_crypt in the monolithic kernel
(as opposed to a module)?

Anyway, the module is loaded - but just sitting there.  If I rmmod it
then insmod it back, I get this:

[   64.830431] ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled

[   64.947694]  [<ffffffff8020c3fe>] child_rip+0x0/0x12

And the machine becomes unhappy enough that is not willing to start
new terminals, or reboot cleanly.

The userspace is Ubuntu 7.10, only the kernel is vanilla from git.
The hardware is a Thinkpad T60, with the kernel compiled for AMD64.

Let me know if you need more details or if you want me to try a patch.

Cheers,
florin
