I know.

Actually, it seems the linux driver uses a threshold of 8 missed
beacons for roaming and a threshold of 24 for disassociation.

But you're correct - this only solves the issue of being disassociated
every 3 minutes; it doesn't solve the problem behind "scan stuck", but
this problem is not present here anymore since the station is not
disassociated all the time.

I'll try to address the scan stuck problem when I find some more time.
