IPW2200 Make error macro "create_workqueue" passed 2 arguments, but takes just 1

My driver used to work fine until i patched suspend2, recompiled the kernel and compiled the hibernate package. After I rebooted from the kernel recompile, I got a modprobe ipw2200 error. I rebooted with my unpatched kernel but still got the same results... I tried to compile the module again but if I try to run make, I get the following:

mkdir -p /home/jp/ipw2200-1.0.6/tmp/.tmp_versions
cp /lib/modules/2.6.13/net/ieee80211/.tmp_versions/*.mod /home/jp/ipw2200-1.0.6/tmp/.tmp_versions
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.13/build M=/home/jp/ipw2200-1.0.6 MODVERDIR=/home/jp/ipw2200-1.0.6/tmp/.tmp_versions modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'

make[1]: *** [_module_/home/jp/ipw2200-1.0.6] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13'
make: *** [modules] Error 2

I sure hope this is silly... Thanks for any input.

edit: I just remembered I also installed some dropline-gnome updates before the driver failed.

I have just been sent a patched ipw2200.c from a friendly linuxer and it solved my problem. If anyone has the same problem, just pm me.

There is a known lockup problem with HAL and the ipw2200/2100 chips.

Have you experienced this at all? I noticed that you mentioned that you are using Dropline GNOME. Some folks have experienced this on Freerock GNOME as well (so it doesn't seem to be Dropline-specific), and found that disabling HAL corrects the lockups.

If your system doesn't lockup, perhaps you could share some details about your configuration? I'd like to help these folks find a solution to their lockup problem.
