Bug#438104: firmware-iwlwifi: Dependencies on 2.6.22 maybe ?
Maybe I'm wrong, but I think this firmware requires the mac80211 module to be loaded, which in turn is only available in kernel 2.6.22 in Debian.
I think the dependencies for this package should then reflect this.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong ;)
Hope this helps
