1.81.1. RHEA-2010:0219: enhancement update

An enhanced iwl3945-firmware package that works with the iwlwifi-3945 driver in the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel to enable support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection Adapter is now available.
iwlwifi-3945 is a kernel driver module for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection Adapter (aka iwl3945 hardware). The iwlwifi-3945 driver requires firmware loaded on the device in order to function. The iwl3945-firmware package provides the iwl3945 driver with this required firmware and enables the driver to function correctly with iwl3945 hardware.
This updated iwl3945-firmware package adds the following enhancement:
* it is best to pair equivalent versions of these components in order to provide maximum compatibility between them. This update brings the firmware into line with the kernel driver included in the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel. (BZ#534100)
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection Adapter users using the iwl3945 driver should upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
