i've been having the same problems with iwm too (failing to load firmware on boot). my trick has been to either boot into an old kernel where iwm was mostly usable. also i've commented out the line enabling wlan0 in my rc.conf then uncommented it after boot and manually running "service netif start" to bring up iwm. that method works most of the time...

I am able to load iwm (iwm7265fw), but there are some networks that I just can't connect to (INIT -> INIT, swscan_cancel_scan, repeat). Attaching to an iPhone hotspot is one example of a not-entirely-helpful network, but there is other, more typical infrastructure that gives trouble too. There is an iwm8xxx in the room that seems to work fine, however... I do not meddle in the affairs of wi-fi, for it is subtle and quick to anger. :)
