Hello Martijn,

I have no clue what's going wrong on your x201 but expect that Norman
uses Turmvilla with slightly modified version of the mentioned brnach.
What puzzles me in you log are the following lines.

> [init -> wifi_drv] no net device registered!
> [init -> wifi_drv] nl80211: Driver does not support authentication/association or connect commands
> [init -> wifi_drv] nl80211: Remove monitor interface: refcount=0

Could it be your wlan_configuration is somewhat corrupted or uses
invalid syntax? I never saw our driver complaining about the STATION
thing before.
