Yes I have a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ that executes the daemon when the
module loads. It works fine when installing the module at the command
line. This does not work at boot because userland is not yet setup.
Therefor running ipw3945d again in rc.local is necessary. Maybe I should
create a full init script and run it before NM.

What I don't get is that I had this working in fc6t3 this exact way.
