Bug#474200: irmware-iwlwifi: firmware sometimes hangs machine, upgrade needed

Package: firmware-iwlwifi
Version: 0.10
Severity: grave
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

The current version made my machine hang after heavy network use.
It also refused to properly unload/reload upon hibernate (to disk)
causing me to loose my wifi until I rebooted.

I went to the intel website and downloaded the newest firmware. A week
later I have not seen any of the above problems anymore.
Please consider upgrading the firmware in debian to the latest released.
