The only call to iwn_iter_func() I see is in if_iwn.c (I'm looking at v1.56):

            iwn_iter_func(sc, ic->ic_bss);

    struct ieee80211com *ic = &sc->sc_ic;
struct ieee80211com {
        struct ieee80211_node   *ic_bss;        /* information for this node */

so it is being called with an ieee80211_node rather than an iwn_node, so
I'm already stuck in the first part of your reply...
