The folks on the wireless project have concluded that the problem I reported is down to a hardware
problem when power saving is switched on on for my Belkin cardbus wireless adapter, so now I simply
turn power-saving off when wlan0 comes up. I did, however, ask whether anyone was going to fix the
fact that once power-saving turns the LEDs off, they never come back on again, but I haven't had an
answer. Is that a regression? I guess the answer is no, because power saving in the rt61pci driver
is feature that is new to 2.6.31. Should it be fixed? I think the answer is yes, but being unable
to do it myself, I probably don't have a vote :-)

All I can do is report that I now know how to avoid my laptop freezing and leave the decision as to
whether it should stay on the regression list to you and the folks from the wireless project.
