For the past week or so, I have been seeing system hangs during boot if I
allow the iwi interface to become active. It usually happens while dhclient
is attempting get an IP address. Before it hangs, I see a couple of
iwi0: link state changed to UP
iwi0: link state changed to DOWN
messages. After it is hung, I cannot get into the kernel debugger with
Control-Alt-Escape and have resort to a power-off to recover.
Has anyone else seen this? Looking through the recent source-changes I do not
see anything that should account for this.
