FWIW, I've had constant issues for the past few months or so with my
atheros based XG-621s in several Soekris boxes running hostap. I was
constantly seeing "ath0: device timeout" errors which would seize
the card and the only was to revive it was to reboot the box. I upgraded
to 5354M+ Aries 2 4G cards but the problem remained. Upgrading to 6.1-STABLE
a few days ago seemed to have taken care of my problems. It's been
4 days now and so far so good.
