(In reply to comment #9 from Helmut Schaa)
Maybe we should only use "ip link set up" for mac80211-drivers?

Hmm...
I would not like to add driver dependencies to ifup-wireless if possible.

The ath5k driver reports an error when the network starts:

wlan0 device: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5212/AR5213 Multiprotocol
MAC/baseband processor (rev 01)
wlan0 is controlled by ifplugd
WEXT auth param 4 value 0x0 - ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
waiting
wlan0 device: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5212/AR5213 Multiprotocol
MAC/baseband processor (rev 01)
wlan0 is prepared for use with ifplugd
wlan0 is assumed to be associated
wlan0 dhcpcd is still waiting for data
waiting

/var/log/messages:
ifup-wireless: wlan0 warning: WPA configured but may be unsupported

dmesg output:
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
ath5k_pci 0000:02:00.0: registered as 'phy0'
phy0: Selected rate control algorithm 'pid'
ath5k phy0: Atheros AR5213A chip found (MAC: 0x79, PHY: 0x45)
ath5k phy0: RF2112A 2GHz radio found (0x56)

and it was not able to connect to my access point.

But this is a problem with the driver, not with ifup-wireless.

When I blacklist ath5k and install madwifi.org/suse/11.0 (rebuild) rpms,
it works fine without any modifications to ifup-wireless:

pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 0
ath_hal: 0.9.18.0 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
wlan: 0.9.4
ath_pci: 0.9.4
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
ath_rate_sample: 1.2 (0.9.4)
wifi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
wifi0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps
36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
wifi0: turboG rates: 6Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
wifi0: H/W encryption support: WEP AES AES_CCM TKIP
wifi0: mac 7.9 phy 4.5 radio 5.6
wifi0: Use hw queue 1 for WME_AC_BE traffic
wifi0: Use hw queue 0 for WME_AC_BK traffic
wifi0: Use hw queue 2 for WME_AC_VI traffic
wifi0: Use hw queue 3 for WME_AC_VO traffic
wifi0: Use hw queue 8 for CAB traffic
wifi0: Use hw queue 9 for beacons
wifi0: Atheros 5212: mem=0x54000000, irq=17

So I can only say WORKSFORME.
