Description of problem:
If I have an unclean shutdown, on boot I noticed that even though I have specified that the ipw2100 driver module get loaded disabled in modprobe.conf, the driver gets loaded and the radio is enabled. The expected behavior (of the driver getting loaded and the radio staying disabled during boot) occurs if I have a clean shutdown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure options to disable the radio on ipw2100 in modprobe.conf
2. Kill power to the box
3. Boot the box. You'll see the driver module get loaded with the radio enabled.
Actual Results: The driver ignores the options in modprobe.conf
Expected Results: The option to disable the radio should have been respected.
This only happens on unclean shutdown?
This only happens (and happens every time) on startup after an unclean shutdown.
What's the exact line you have in modprobe.conf?
options ipw2100 disable=1
Does this persist in FC5? I was unable to reproduce this.

No, this no longer occurs in FC5.
