1.82.1. RHEA-2010:0215: enhancement update

An enhanced iwl4965-firmware package is now available.
This package contains the firmware required by the iwl4965 driver for Linux.
* The firmware package has been enhanced to synchronize it with the latest version of the upstream Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN driver (version 228.61.2.24). This upgrade brings about the following new functionality:
More graceful handling of Rx hangs (NMI) More reliable scanning A ten second pauses after association before power-down Receiver is now reset via re-tune after it misses beacons TGK measurement is now disabled when it receives a packet More reliable Tx with ACK/BA/CTS
As a result, the driver is now more reliable in a range of areas, scanning more efficiently and handling problems and interruptions better. (BZ#510757)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated iwl4965-firmware package, which resolves this issue.
