Sorry but that wasn't the question.  I don't believe the commit you are 
responding to changed the behaviour of the ipw driver and that was what 
I wanted to confirm.

Someone reported the ipw driver at the author's web site works (better); 
you might try that.  Unfortunately the code in the tree is not being 
maintained so far as I can tell.

I don't believe the ipw driver does honors any of the net80211 debug
