Re: wlan0 no longer functional after n249128-a0c64a443e4c -> n249146-cb5c07649aa0

I changed mine to be the same as yours. I can connect. (I use iwn(4) and 
ath(4) here.)

Do you reboot every time you test or simply this?

	service netif stop wlan0
	service netif start wlan0

If simply above, does a reboot have it work again?

The reason I ask is, I discovered, today, a quirk in 14-CURRENT, regardless 
of the wpa_supplicant installed. It will always associate following a 
reboot however when running the above two commands to stop and start wlan0 
I can reproduce your problem. The workaround for now is when running the 
above two commands to also ifconfig wlan0 down; ifconfig wlan0 up.

Can you try ifconfig wlan0 down; ifconfig wlan0 up after stopping/starting 
wlan0? You may need to wait 2-3 seconds between down and up.

If this occurs at boot, try the ifconfig down and up anyway (to help narrow 
down the problem).
