When setting debug.wpi to 0 it seems like the problem is gone. I'm not 
using ZFS by the way.  I did have a problem connecting to the AP at my 
university though; the driver wouldn't assosicate whatever I tried. I 
didn't have a chance to do some extensive testing though. It might be 
because of the WEP+wpa_supplicant + ca certificate method that is 
required to authenticate. Anyway I'll let it know if there is an actual 
problem with the driver itself
