Hi,

I'm trying to use iwi(4) on my laptop.

% jarjarbinks:space$ kenv | grep intel
% legal.intel_iwi.license_ack="1"

I first load iwi_bss and then iwi.  Unfortunately I get the following
messages:

% iwi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG> mem 0xc8218000-0xc8218fff irq 11 at device 3.0 on pci6

% Total                             514545       1158

Any idea?
