Subject[patch 123/164] iwlwifi: reset card during probe
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Reinette Chatre <reinette.chatre@intel.com>

commit 4843b5a731b31916d100cfc5ba4d03ae78462ed9 upstream.

To ensure that card is in a sane state during probe we add a reset call.
This change was prompted by users of kdump who was not able to bring up the
wireless driver in the kdump kernel. The problem here was that the primary
kernel, which is not running at the time, left the wireless card up and
running. When the kdump kernel starts it is thus possible to immediately
receive interrupts from firmware after registering interrupt, but without
being ready to deal with interrupts from firmware yet.
