My caps lock led i blinking and everything is frozen... not even
CTRL-ALT-F1 is working. I believe this is a kernel panic.

I'll think it is not iwl3945 module, because it is loaded before gone
is starting... maybe it is something in NetworkManager or in some way
connected with AP using WPA encryption...
