can't set channel in ad-hoc mode if essid is empty

Description of problem:
Can't set channel if essid is empty in ad-hoc mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. % iwconfig eth1 mode Ad-hoc channel 4
# can't set channel.
2. % modprobe -r ipw2100; modprobe ipw2100 mode=1 channel=4
# failed to set channel
3. iwconfig eth1 mode ad-hoc essid "abc" channel 4
# channel was set correctly.
Did this test again on RHEL40-Pre-RC2. Now the 1.0.0 2100 driver can
set channel successfully in ad-hoc mode even if essid is empty.
So this bug seems to have been fixed.
