seems with the latest Mainline I am getting the ath9k carpping out
while of streaming(dmesg below)..:

will try a bisect if I have the time..

I will try to recreate here with 3.0.0-rc7-wl, we can get more
information by ath9k debug=0xffffffff.

seems to fire off randomly over here.

I have got AR5416, will try with that.

I can try the bisect, but might take a while, since external
activities(job). Seems this is just starting i.g. with
3.0.0-rc1 I never saw this, but with 3.0.0-rc7-00125-gf560f66
its making noise.

I am unable to get this problem in my AR5416 :( will also try
tomorrow. I am using the card for browsing etc.
recently there were patches for hardware code changes.
just a guess, please check does this patch helps(or is it already
there). i think this will be called via
ath_set_channel->ath9k_hw_reset->ath9k_hw_init_bb and may be

I am not seeing this in: ar5008_hw_init_bb
will apply this to the current Mainline when I get the chance and run the system to see if I get this firing off.
(as for what I have, and was doing:(OS fedora 15)simply streaming radio with clients running in the background twitter, facebook, thunderbird
