Hi Andrew,

Thank you for replying.  I'm a bit disconcerted by this problem since
nobody seems to meet it but me.

I've tried this change without success.  Interestingly, it seems that
the interrupt storm happens while if_iwi module is trying to load the
firmware and stops as soon as if_iwi gives up.

If you have any other idea, please let me knom.  I am willing to test
whatever you might deem useful.
