I'm not sure if this should report to the upstream kernel,  want to know any
of you have same experiances.

Since last kernel update,  when i boot my laptop to the desktop, the wifi
dead while network manager trying associate to the AP, can't build any

I check dmesg at once:

Oh, a crash track, and IRQ #17(to the wireless?) is disabled, then wlan no
more reply to any request to associatings.

Acroding to the log, the wireless work the first time it associated to my
AP, this is done by the /etc/rc.d/network, i configured in rc.conf.

the second time it associate is when entered the desktop, network-manager
begin to control the netwok stuff.  then the ath9k module crashed.

Reboot the system won't help, only turn out that system can't find my
wireless. I have to compeletely shutdown the conputer, unplug power and
battery, then boot again, and maybe run into a normal situaiton, none of
above happend.
