I'm having problems using the iwn0 driver whose firmware I imported to
pkgsrc-wip (wip/iwn-firmware). The driver itself was imported some weeks
ago to -current as I noticed.

The following is my system:
NetBSD  4.99.53 NetBSD 4.99.53 (CLEMENTINE) #4: Sun Feb 10 00:27:42 CET
2008  hernani@:/usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile.amd64/CLEMENTINE amd64

Its hardware is a LENOVO 89185WG (ThinkPad R61) laptop.

By simply typing ``ifconfig iwn0 up'' the following is said to syslogd:
Feb 23 05:10:17  /netbsd: iwn0: timeout resetting Tx ring 1
Feb 23 05:10:17  /netbsd: iwn0: timeout resetting Tx ring 3

This endless loop disappeared when I downloaded and used the latest firmware
instead of the one in wip -

The iwn wlan nic still cannot connect to my AP but it stopped spiting out
those hideous messages.

iwn only works with a patch from blymn@.
It is not currently commited yet as he works out a couple of more issues.
Will get it commited so we can get more testers.
