Bug#460872: Caused by buggy wifi signal
 
It turns out that the error was caused by a Linksys wifi router that had
locked up and was sending out some buggy wifi signal. Nevertheless, I
think that the driver should be able to recover from this and simply
ignore it. Not fall into a resource hogging infinite restart loop.

upstream merged iwlwifi driver for 2.6.24. it doesn't need that strange
binary daemon. so this bug will not be worked in as iwlwifi is a
different code base and going forward.
