Can you please verify this? Would you please let me know which version
of the OS you were running before this?

I haven't changed anything on the AR9285 codebase that would account
for the above.

Something to keep in mind with the AR9280/AR9285 support is that I've
seen it be -very- unpredictable - sometimes it's reliable off the bat,
sometimes it's not. You have to repeat it a few times to verify that
you've actually seen a change.
