It appears as though the following commit from upstream needs to be reverted, but I will investigate:

Steve asked me to investigate, and indeed the patch "iwlagn: Support new 5000 microcode" shoudn't have been applied on 2.6.32 and 2.6.33 stable trees by upstream.

Support for the iwlagn new firmware file format was only added beginning with 2.6.35 (commit "iwlagn: implement loading a new firmware file type"), so the patch is only for 2.6.35 or later.
