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
