I don't know if this is related, but I have a wi card running in
access point mode and is disassociates under high traffic.  If I
start a transfer from the access point machine to a machine on the lan
(for instance), the remote machine disassociates for a few seconds
every 20 seconds or so.  The card probes as:

wi0: <Intersil Prism2.5> mem 0xcecff000-0xcecfffff irq 11 at device 17.0 on pci0
wi0: 802.11 address: 00:05:5d:ee:e6:e7
wi0: using RF:PRISM2.5 MAC:ISL3874A(Mini-PCI)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary 1.00.05, Station 1.03.04

ifconfig says:

        inet netmask 0xfffffff8 broadcast
        inet6 fe80::205:5dff:feee:e6e7%wi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3 
        ether 00:05:5d:ee:e6:e7
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect <hostap> (DS/2Mbps <hostap>)
        status: associated
        ssid GILBERT 1:GILBERT
        stationname "FreeBSD WaveLAN/IEEE node"
        channel 11 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
        wepmode OFF weptxkey 1

The hostap machine is 4.8-STABLE and the client is 5.1-RELEASE.
