This patch converts the b43 driver to threaded interrupts:
http://bu3sch.de/patches/wireless-testing/20090816-1535/patches/002-b43-threaded-irq-handler.patch

It kind of works with this hack applied to kernel/irq/manage.c

Yeah, isn't that what we want to do? I read the test as "wake other threads,
if there are other threads" or something like that.
