It's a bug. But this looks like some different problem than is showed in
[1]

Based on:
Jul 25 01:14:59 heisenberg kernel: [ 121.551098] iwl4965 0000:14:00.0:
Queue 4 stuck for 2000 ms.
Jul 25 01:14:59 heisenberg kernel: [ 121.555226] iwl4965 0000:14:00.0:
On demand firmware reload
Jul 25 01:15:12 heisenberg kernel: [ 121.560305] iwl4965 0000:14:00.0:
MAC is in deep sleep!. CSR_GP_CNTRL = 0x080033D8
this look like firmware hang. This happen just after module load, that's
good news, because it allow to log relative small amount debug messages
to see what possibly driver do wrong to crash firmware.

Please configure syslog to log kernel debug messages. Not sure how to do
this in debian, see "Configure syslog to log kernel debug messages" in
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DebugWireless for corresponding fedora
config. Then reload driver:

modprobe -r iwl4965
echo > /var/log/kernel
modprobe iwl4965 debug=0x47ffffff
and send me /var/log/kernel including messages from iwl4965 module
load to first "MAC is in deep sleep" message.

Note this require kernel compiled with
CONFIG_IWLWIFI_LEGACY_DEBUG=y

Thanks
Stanislaw
