I'm running the above configuration, RELENG_7 kernel and WPA, on an Asus
laptop eeePC 900 for which one must patch the HAL with: )
all is fine, mostly, but when 'bgscan' is activated on the interface
ath0 it get stuck reproduce-able after some time without any traffic through
the interface; setting 'ifconfig ath0 -bgscan' makes the problem going

could it be related to the bug I'm facing on another laptop with
bgscan/WPA/iwi0, see:
