I'm running

# uname -srm
NetBSD 4.99.3 i386

on my laptop and I can't use my iwi0 any more (this used to work with
older 3.99.something). Now I just get this in dmesg:

# dmesg | grep iwi
iwi0 at pci1 dev 13 function 0: Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2200BG Mini-PCI Adapter (rev. 0x05)
iwi0: interrupting at irq 11
iwi0: 802.11 address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
iwi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
iwi0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
iwi0: timeout waiting for ucode to initialize
iwi0: could not load microcode

Before you ask, I have this installed from pkgsrc:

# pkg_info | grep iwi
iwi-firmware-2.3nb1 Firmware binary images for iwi(4) driver

Any ideas?
