Certainly. Where's it entering ddb? The error return chain seems to be
correct up through wpi_init returning failure, none of the direct
calls from inside if_wpi check that return at all (which is perhaps
broken but not likely to land in ddb) and above that it's some
indirect call through ->if_init from the network stack, and there are
quite a few possible choices.
