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.
