There is indeed a problem.  It seems that for some of the old chipsets still
supported by iwlwifi my import script picked an old version of the firmware
an no one had noticed in the last 6 months.

This seems to include
 	- 3160
 	- 7260
 	- 7265

Sorry about that.  I believe you are the 1st or 2nd person to try with anything
older than an 8000 chipset.  dmesg should have an appropriate error
message hopefully about trying to load newer versions and failing.

Sorry for not picking this up immediately for the first reply.  It is
almost 2am here.  I'll fix these three in the morning in main and
merge them to stable in 3 days.

This should still not affect iwm(4) in any way which does have the
correct firmware.  So maybe we can sort the iwm(4) problem out in the
