Kernel 115 Doesn't Like iwl4965

Since upgrading to kernel 2.6.23.14-115.fc8, my Intel iwl4965 wireless
card refuses to connect. It seems to think my hardware kill switch is
enabled, which is not true. The hardware radio switch is most certainly
on. Output from dmesg is at the end of this message.

If I roll back to kernel 2.6.23.14-107.fc8 (the previous one),
everything works as it should.

Laptop is an HP/Compaq 8510w with 4GB RAM and running F8 (64-bit).

Has anyone else run into this?

Cheers,

Chris
