Description Alexander Motin freebsd_committer 2012-05-12 19:00:33 UTC
Roaming between APs in some cases causes firmware crash on Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965. Unluckily iwn(4) driver doesn't restart it until interface manually reset with ifconfig down/up. Log showing the problem with enabled debugging is attached.

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
