unstable aironet driver?

I've been seeing what appears to be some instability with my aironet driver
since switching to 5.2-CURRENT. I also did a recent checkout and recompile
and am still seeing it. Every once in a while the card will simply
diasppear. Other times the machine simply reboots under heavy network
activity without a single error message to syslog or console. If I let the
machine just sit there for a few hours without much network activity aside
from random DHCP requests, I will eventually see something like:
Jan 19 06:53:20 Mocha kernel: Jan 19 06:53:20 Mocha dhclient: send_packet:
No buffer space available
Could I really be running out of mbufs? I'm using kernel
autoscaling/autosizing. I'm not certain all these incidents are related.
They're certainly repeatable. The hardware is an IBM ThinkPad T30 with a
Cisco 350 MPI (miniPCI) card.

I know the information I have isn't very detailed. If someone could point
me to better debugging techniques, that would be great.
