Bug#475310: ipw3945d: clear udev rules after remove

Package: ipw3945d
Severity: normal

Cannot upgrade to iwl3945/iwlwifi without removing 
/etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules, which will be regenerated, 
otherwise udev leaves interface as wlan0_rename in a half-zombie 
state that keeps network-manager from running scripts appropriately.  So
the purge rules for this package should clear that file and recommend
reboot, or edit that file appropriately to remove the entry inserted by
udev when ipw3945 is loaded.  See Bug#465471.  Thank you.
