I spoke too soon, just rebooted into latest kernel and once again the
ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection
ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw request_firmware failed: Reason -2
I can apply the above patch to the new
/usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions and rebuild initramfs to get
a working driver at boot again.
Don't know how to raise the visibility on this bugfix ... anyone ?

At least this remains true, I've had only three "Firmware error,
restarting" since 8th June. Prior to that it was several times per hour
so this at least has improved a lot :)
