It was there, for me, in test2 but disappeared in test3.  There was a
bug where anaconda mismatched the device names (it confused the wired
with the wireless nic), so its presence as an option may have been a
bug?

Note that, for me, my 3945 will only connect 10% of the time unless I
use "options iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=1" as per
