New driver in linux kernel for intel 3945 wlan chip

I already tried the new driver for the intel 3945 wlan chip (iwl3945) a couple of times, but it always ran more unsatisfying than the old driver (ipw3945) – even though the old driver has many problems (needs a daemon running, sometimes problems when resuming from suspend/hibernate, ..).

The new version in the 2.6.25 linux kernel works quite well for me (the one in 2.6.24 did not), but the wlan led is not working. This patch makes it work (I removed the support for the 4965 chip since I don’t need it. If you need it: this is the source to the patch).
