ipw2100 and kernel 2.6.12 issues

After upgrading to kernel 2.6.12 with software suspend2 the ipw2100-1.1.0 driver stopped compiling.

The following patch take care of it. It solves the[b] is_multicast_ether_addr[/b] and [b]create_workqueue[/b] errors.

  1. great! its working with a sarge on thinkpad!
    thanks for debugging
    whatever means
    ipw2100: Fatal interrupt. Scheduling firmware restart
    lets try it 😉

  2. Does it gives you an oops also ?, i have seen it again on a IBM Thinkpad.

    On my Toshiba Pro M10 works without any problems
