Looks like I'm also getting bit by this on another machine that uses
ath5k. Watching wireshark on two machines, almost all packets sent to
the ath5k card never make it with 2.6.38. I also tested with a
compat-wireless tarball from 2011-03-18 with the same results.
Reverting to 2.6.37 makes the issue go away. Definitely seems like an
unsafe upgrade at least for Atheros users.
