Bug #168: Livelocked limit engaged while trying to setup IPW wireless

* Author: mschacht

* Target version: 4.2.x
Dear all,

A few days ago I wanted to try Sephe's 80211 patch to get wpa
working under DF. However, I can't load the firmware (neither with
nor without the patch). After ipwcontrol and ifconfig I get the
following error messages:

intr 5 at 50001 > 50000 hz, livelocked limit engaged!
ipw0: timeout waiting for firmware initialization to complete
ipw0: could not load firmware
intr 5 at 7399 < 20000 hz, livelock removed

ACPI turned on or off doesn't seem to make a difference.
I attached a verbose dmesg and vmstat -i before and after

ipwcontrol ipw0 -f....

and after

ifconfig ipw0 inet ... netmask ...

Best regards,

PS: wep worked under FBSD60 and under WinXP
