port Intel WifiLink 4965/100/1000/2000/5000/6000 driver
Both Linux and FreeBSD seem to have a driver. It'd be userful to have it too.

I've started looking at porting the iwn driver from FreeBSD, which looks feasible. Separate from that, however, I believe someone will need to sort out firmware licensing with Intel. I'll check with the the developer mailing list for feedback.

An alternative to including firmware in illumos would be to let the distros deal with it - for example, OI could make its own package that contains the binary blob. Of course having the firmware distributed by illumos would be preferred.
