I attempted other builds after the Oct-1 modules. Some of them had
serious problems, kernel panic with flash, fail to resume from suspend.
Since the Oct-1 modules do not work for everyone I think that either we
use that in backports or enable Winckler's pseudo fix of disabling N

I have the same bug here (and didn't test any new drive) but I would like to share a WORKAROUND, while the bug isn't fixed.

If you load the iwlagn with the option 11n_disable, you disable the N
standard, and avoid the kernel panic.

I've add 'options iwlagn 11n_disable=1' to my /etc/modprobe.d/options.
So far, so good.

I want this fixed for the Intrepid release, but if it's not possible, I would consider add this workaround enable by default.
