SRU Justification

Impact: Adds support for iwlwifi 5000 series wireless adapters from Intel.

Patch description: Backport of iwlwifi 5000 from 2.6.27 performed by Intel. The driver has unique PCI IDs, so has little chance of causing regression.

The iwlwifi 5000 uCode is available at: http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi/downloads/iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz

Besides iwlwifi 5000 uCode, Intel also released updates for 4965 and 3945 uCode. Do we need to trigger another SRU request for uCode?
