Default Bug#497971: 2 more things

Hi,

I can confirm that on a ThinkPad X60s and would like do add two things:

1.) This is actually a regression from 2.6.25 (tested with package
version 2.6.25-7), which had channels 12 and 13 available. This can be
quite confusing in case you are used to associate to an AP on one of
these channels -- and suddenly, this connection seems to be broken with
the new kernel. That could usually lead to the assumption that something
seriously is broken within the wireless setup.

2.) The kernel module still reports at boot time:

iwl3945: Tunable channels: 13 802.11bg, 23 802.11a channels

That, however, is not true.

Regards,
Martin
