If you could confirm this works with current current, I'd appreciate

OK, but it would be nice to push the semantic knowledge of what needs
setting (assuming all card state lost) to net80211, since this "no
nodes on INIT->*" invariant lives in that code.
I haven't tried suspend/resume with wep keys, partly because I tend to
resume in different places, partly because I take the card out so it
won't get broken, and partly because the machine locks up with X :-(
