This is the 900mhz NICs, right?

.. I wonder why that is happening on those NICs. This is in normal
hostap+sta WDS setup, right? Rather than adhoc or mesh?
(That changes how the MAC handles beacon TX.)

What was this caused by again? Which part of ath_calibrate() was
causing the issue?
Is it the noise floor save/load? IQ calibration? ANI? Anything else?

Blah. So the above is in setmlme_dropsta() -> domime() ->
ieee80211_node_leave() (MLME_DISASSOC or MLME_DEAUTH in hostap mode,
on a broadcast address).

What's the second path?  How the heck does ieee80211_parse_beacon()
call ieee80211_node_leave() ?
