sys/dev/ic/an.c: revision 1.33 via patch
sys/dev/ic/anvar.h: revision 1.9 via patch
Fix two bugs: frames were bogusly discarded with the complaint
"oversize frame." Also, some an(4) instances (esp. w/ firmware
version 5+) would not reliably interoperate with some Cisco APs.
Add a sysctl for enabling/disabling debugging.

sometimes omitted, when connected to a Cisco AP; an(4) was *always*
discarding the gap. The problem with "oversize frames" was an
off-by-2 error in the frame-length arithmetic.
While we're here, pad some RIDs to the length that new firmware
Thanks to Jim Miller for his valuable bug reports and testing, and
