    Subjectipw2100: firmware problem
    Hi!

    I'm fighting with firmware problem: if ipw2100 is compiled into
    kernel, it is loaded while kernel boots and firmware loader is not yet
    available. That leads to uninitialized (=> useless) adapter.

    What's the prefered way to solve this one? Only load firmware when
    user does ifconfig eth1 up? [It is wifi, it looks like it would be
    better to start firmware sooner so that it can associate to the
    AP...].

    Last initcall available in kernel is late_initcall; that's not late
    enough for me. Is adding one more initcall that is started when
    userland is available a solution?
