Boy! are you ever right! I had been booting with the -11 kernel, so
I boot this time with the -9 kernel and WiFi works fine again.
I wonder if anyone has filed a bug on this yet? I will just continue
to boot with -9 and await a new kernel with this fixed in the near future.
Thanks for the tip. I would have been digging for a long time
without it :-)
This msg is from my laptop now on WiFi ...
