ipw2200: Check for -1 INTA in tasklet too.
This is an attempt to fix a long standing open bug: http://bugzilla.intellinuxwireless.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1334 The interrupt handler checks for INTA being -1, apparently that means that the hardware is gone. But the interrupt handler defers actual interrupt processing to a tasklet. By the time the tasklet is run and checks INTA again, the hardware might be gone and INTA be -1, which confuses the driver because all event bits are set. The patch applies to 2.6.37.
