Subject[PATCH 14/25] bcm43xx: init fix for possible Machine Check
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Michael Buesch <mb@bu3sch.de>

Place the Init-vs-IRQ workaround before any card register
access, because we might not have the wireless core mapped
at all times in init. So this will result in a Machine Check
caused by a bus error.
