I'm not sure I understand you correctly. Are you saying iwi is
known to be completely broken and unlikely to get fixed in the
near future, or are you only talking about the monitor mode?

With r192468 I can no longer get iwi to associate to the AP.
"ifconfig wlan0 list scan" shows the AP, but S:N is listed
as -95:-95 (IIRC).

It works with the old kernel from May 15 14:37:49 CEST (and the new userland).
