I saw this as well on my iBook. Backing out Michael Graff's changes of

cvs rdiff -r1.24 -r1.25 syssrc/sys/dev/ic/wi.c
cvs rdiff -r1.3 -r1.4 syssrc/sys/dev/ic/wi_ieee.h
cvs rdiff -r1.9 -r1.10 syssrc/sys/dev/ic/wireg.h
cvs rdiff -r1.4 -r1.5 syssrc/sys/dev/ic/wivar.h

fixed the problem for me. I haven't yet gone over the changes to try
and figure out what is losing. We discussed this a little bit on
current-users on about 9/25 and did't figure much out.
