SubjectRe: 2.6.38-rc7, iwlagn warning
FWIW, I'm changing the subject since "crash" bothers me, it's not even
close to a crash.

And I'd prefer if you also stopped using the word crash. Nothing
crashed. All you got was a stack trace because I put a warning there.
Really, not the end of the world, and in fact it probably has very
little or even no effect on functionality.

However ... actually looking at the log files I'm totally confused what
it is that you're doing. Something appears to be continually switching
between interface modes, even using wireless extensions, yet it really
wants to be IBSS all the time. What's causing all this pointless
switching? It'd be useful to figure that out, but I'm not sure how. What
applications are you running that manage wireless? Are you, by any
chance, running wpa_supplicant manually in addition to network-manager?

Irregardless of that though, there's clearly some kind of bug in the
driver since the TX power setting times out, and then as a result we get
the warning.

Would you be willing to enable tracing and capture a trace using
trace-cmd, by running 'trace-cmd record -e mac80211 -e iwlwifi'?
