ipw2200 failes to compile at create_workqueue

I was using the kernel with the ipw2200 module without any problems.
I was having some problems with hibernation etc, and descided to upgrade to 2.6.13 and apply the software suspend 2 patch in hopes of getting it to work.

Now when I try to install the ipw2200 module again, it fails with this message:


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

I tried to open up the ipw2200.c and change


priv->workqueue = create_workqueue(DRV_NAME, 0);

priv->workqueue = create_workqueue(DRV_NAME);
This made the module compile, but it doesn't work correctly.
modprobe succeeds, and I get a eht1 device up, but when I try to use some of the wireless-functions like
'iwlist eth1 scan' I just get this response: 'eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning : Bad address'
