I have noticed that for about the past month or so I've been getting hundreds 
of the following every day in /var/log/messages:

+ath0: link state changed to DOWN
+ath0: link state changed to UP

It doesn't seem to affect connectivity, but it's really annoying in the 
security report. Is there anything I can do to stop this? I'm running 
-CURRENT from yesterday. I have built Sam's new drivers, but this problem 
started long before that and was not affected by the upgrade. The lease on 
the AP I'm connecting to is good for 24 hours so I don't think that's an 
issue. I looked at the traffic with ethereal and everything looks normal. I'm 
getting sorely tempted to go back to isc-dhclient and see if this goes away, 
but I thought I would ask here first.
