I'm using the iwi driver with wpa successfully on my Thinkpad T42p for
quite while now with WPA enabled.
During but I'm always seeing:

iwi0: fatal error
iwi0: wake firmware monitor
iwi0: reset firmware

And then things work fine. Is this expected?
Also in some cases (about 1 of 50 boots) the iwi0 device seems to
hang (no network traffic going through. A reboot helps.

All this is not urgent of course, but I thought I should mention it.
Are there any plans to update the iwi driver? I could try to help.
