on initramfs iwlwifi is crashing, anyone else?

A few things that I still could not fix (so if somebody has a solution, please post), but that might help in case of problems:

Once wifi is broken during boot (e.g. missing firmware) it is usually also broken after boot (because it will not be re-enabled?) without manual intervention, and from then on mkinitcpio autodetection will not include the modules properly.

In some (at least my) cases firmware is not detected correctly by mkinitcpio (also not listed properly by modinfo <module>). In these cases it seems to be necessary to somehow find out via dmesg and manually add the file needed via mkinitcpio.conf.

Hello, the -D <driver> option seems not necessary (probably I just copied it somewhere and did not think about it any more), so I removed it. ccm module was already in my cpios, so I'm not sure if I was just lucky here - now it is added.

Thanks for the package.

A dependency on the crypto module ccm.ko is needed -- at least in my case -- when authenticating via WPA/WPA2 -- otherwise I keep seeing messages like "wlan0: deauthenticating from xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx by local choice (Reason: 1=UNSPECIFIED)"

Also, is the -D on wpa_supplicant really needed?
