    sys/dev/iwi          if_iwi.c if_iwivar.h 
  Rename IWI_LOCK_ASSERT to IWI_LOCK_CHECK per Sam's suggestion,
  and make it print under debug.iwi control same as other debugging stuff.
  Remove the device_printf() in iwi_ioctl() and replace with this:
           * wait until pending iwi_cmd() are completed, to avoid races
           * that could cause problems.
          while (sc->flags & IWI_FLAG_BUSY)
                  msleep(sc, &sc->sc_mtx, 0, "iwiioctl", hz);
  This at least prevents what has become an almost systematic failure for my
  system, presumably due to a previous iwi_cmd() not complete yet by the
  time iwi_ioctl() is called.
  It has been pointed to my attention that the real problem could be
  calling ieee80211_ioctl() with the lock held. If that is true,
  there might still be a possibility for a race condition e.g. an
  interrupt coming while the ioctl is sleeping.
  Need to investigate further on what changes are required to release
  the lock before calling ieee80211_ioctl
