[PATCH] ipw2200: wireless extension sensitivity threshold support



The patch allows the user to set the handover threshold, i.e. the number
of consecutively missed beacons that will trigger a roaming attempt. The
disassociation threshold is set to 3 times the handover threshold.

3.2 iwconfig sens
-----------------------------------------------
The 'iwconfig ethX sens XX' command will not set the signal sensitivity
threshold, as described in iwconfig documentation, but rather the number
of consecutive missed beacons that will trigger handover, i.e. roaming
to another access point. At the same time, it will set the disassociation
threshold to 3 times the given value.
