I can confirm that "the bug" is also in 8.0-RELEASE and that on 6.x
txpower was non-zero (100 IIRC).
Also, I'm seeing other issues ...
1) During boot wireless interface is too slow to associate and I'm
seeing connection errors from other programs (e.g. ntpd). This was not
the case with 6.x releases.
2) The following began appearing in the system log:
kernel: iwi0: need multicast update callback
Also wpa_supplicant(8) generates quite a lot of messages (it did none
before). Some of them seems interesting while others not (to me).
I hope someone will fix the issues (although they're not critical).
