ipw2200 mode monitor
2.6.15-rcX have merged the newer driver but yet the monitor mode fails:

iwconfig eth1 mode monitor
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.
The Patch adding IPW2200_MONITOR wasn't enough as it seems: Kconfig options for IPW2200. Firmware 2.4 is said to immediatly restart on monitor mode.
Also noticed that ipw2200 doesn't survive kexec, will look into that.
