Thank you for the tip!

Previously I had

[   55.501127] iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network
Connection driver for Linux, 1.2.0

and after installing  linux-backport-modules I now have:

[12350.137452] iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network
Connection driver for Linux, 1.2.25

Now the LED is on and I see those messages:

[12439.435517] Registered led device: iwl-phy1:RX
[12439.435558] Registered led device: iwl-phy1:TX

The LED is always on whereas with the gutsy kernel it blinked when there
was wifi network activity.

This is a partial fix but this is much better since now I know if the RF
kill-switch is on or off.

But when I reactivate wifi (RF kill-switch on then off), the LED does
not light up by itself.  I have to perform a manual network scan (iwlist
scanning) to light it up again.
