Default Bug#461924: 461924: iwlwifi fixed upstream

Or so they say. Is just following the upstream instructions at
linuxwireless.org likely to work? Will it mess up things done "the
debian way"?

The other complication is that it sounds as if the fix is to the driver,
not the firmware. The tarball doesn't appear to have any firmware in
it. They say the 2.6.25 kerrnel will include the fixes, with
linuxwireless.org having stuff for earlier versions.

Thanks for the tip. For those following, it's
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel.

According to the upstream (intel wifi) bug, 2.6.25 rc5 has the fix; rc3
didn't. rc5 is what's current from DebianKernel.

I have mixed feelings about using the bleeding edge; I notice some
kernels have been held out of testing for quite awhile, apparently
because of significant problems.

I don't quite know how the packaging works, but I assume
http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ and other docs referenced on
the wiki page explain it.

no held out of testings because of politics
aka d-i release freezes
