After upgrading to 2.6.33-rc1 (and now -rc2) I can no longer use my iwl3945 card.
There's nothing suspicious in dmesg. (But output attached for all cases).
iwconfig returns: wlan0 no wireless extensions.
iwlist: wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
Please contact me, if you need any additional info.
Thanks for assistance and merry Christmas!

Did you do "ifconfig wlan0 up" first?
Yes, of course.
could you please load module like "modprobe iwl3945 debug=0x43fff" and then send dmesg output from that as well as after you have run "ifconfig wlan0 up"

Dmesg - iwl3945 loaded with debug=0x43fff
Could you please set CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT in your kernel config file?
Weeell.. Sorry folks. I've apparently missed an API change... For the next time, I'll read the changelogs more carefully. With CFG80211_WEXT everything works fine (and I've found that "iw" works with CFG80211_WEXT disabled). So that's definitely my mistake.
