iwl4965 cannot obtain an ip address by DHCP with kernel 22.214.171.124-76

Description of problem:
The iwl4965 driver provided by kernel 126.96.36.199-76 does not seems to be able to
correctly obtain the network parameters by dhcp (and, to be honest, it does not
work even with a fixed ip and gateway).
The problem seems to rely on the kernel itself because with the same version of
the iwl4965 driver, networkmanager, wpa_supplicant and dhclient everything works
perfectly just by switching back to a previous version of the kernel (f.i.
I attached a sample log that shows how dhclient goes in time-out even if
networkmanager has already authenticated with the AP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
iwl4964 1.2.16kds provided by vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-76.fc9.x86_64
Try to connect to a wireless network using an Intel 4965 card using kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Wireless Connection in NetworkManager
2. Put the proper authentication method and password
3. Wait for the network parameters
NetworkManager tries many time to obtain the network parameters but it fails.
NetWorkManager connects to the AP, receive the propers network parameters and
you can browse the local network (and/or internet).
