Comment 1 Michael Solberg 2009-02-17 17:38:27 EST
Updating platform
Comment 2 Michael Solberg 2009-02-19 09:08:50 EST
The code is already in the kernel-2.6.18-128 source tree.  If I set CONFIG_IWL3945_LEDS=y and recompile the kernel, the LED lights up when I ifconfig wlan0 up.

The blinking seems a little off, though.  It seems to only have three states, on, off, and blinking.
