NetBSD 1.6ZK NetBSD 1.6ZK (GENERIC_LAPTOP) #0: Wed Mar 17 15:12:30 JST 2004 i386
I'm using NetBSD complied with GENERIC_LAPTOP. To use wireless of
ThinkPAD X30, I added the following to GENERIC_LAPTOP.

wi*     at pci? dev ? function ?        # Intersil Prism Mini-PCI (802.11b)

When I type "wiconfig wi0" as a user (not root), NetBSD fails into infinite loop sometime.

I don't know my configuration is related to this bug.

Type "wiconfig wi0".
