Bug #2733: iwn firmware error rendering xserver unusable

* Author: masu
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal

* Category: 
* Target version: 

a firmware error of the wifi nic occurrs right after drm is started when starting xserver on my machine.
The nic is automatically reset afterwards and drm becomes initialized.

But then during the X session the nic error occurrs again resulting in an unsuccessful restart that causes also drm to fail which in effect leaves the X console unresponsive.
Strangely this effect appears when browsing the Internet and not when e.g., installing packages from remote locations that also generates network traffic over the wifi nic.

Does someone has a Lenovo X61 and experiences the same problems?
