Disabling iwn shows that iwn is indeed the culprit.  Any thoughts on what 
works differently with the patch as pertains to the driver?  A second test gave 
me a uvm_fault and the first error message from the driver is "fatal firmware

smaller than the memory size?  I thought this used to work but now I get a 
"not possible" message whenever I try.
