Is this still a probelm with current F8 kernels?

Ah, thanks for pointing that out. :-)

I'm still going to leave it closed for now -- please reopen if the problem is 
still happending with current F8 kernels.

Sorry for the late answer.
I just tested with:
vermagic: SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS 
unload module and reload with options ipw2200 led=1 hwcrypto=1 -> works
reboot just in case with the same parm -> works

In other words it works again.

Ok some more feedback. 
While it seems to work in general, it's flaky. Meaning I was running a streaming
video and the led went on and off, and the stream began to break up at times.
First thought was I had something CPU intensive running in the back, so I
rebooted since I just upgraded the kernel via yum. Clean fresh machine same
video same problem.
So I unloaded the module and reloaded without hwcrypto=1 and the problem went away.
vermagic: SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS

Options with problem:
#options ipw2200 led=1 hwcrypto=1

Options without any problem:
options ipw2200 led=1

Workaround run without hwcrypto.
