Hi, my iwl3945 wireless broke when kernel-220.127.116.11-27.fc7 appeared in Fedora
updates. Upgrading from iwlwifi-firmware-2.14.3-2 to 2.14.4 fixed it (actually
I just unpacked the upstream tarball into /lib/firmware).
On a bigger picture if there is a tight dependency between the firmware versions
and the kernel driver, it seems to me this dependency should be reflected in the
firmware RPM spec.
