[iwn driver] SIOCS80211 error on 4965AGN


I configured an amd64 kernel with iwn option and set the license
variable in loader.conf. My make.conf specifies cputype of nocona

Upon trying to bring up iwn0 I get a SIOCS80211 error. My machine is a
Lenovo t61p.
Do I need to play around with ioctls ? I'm somewhat new to debugging
the kernel :)
