Well, I highly recommend rebuilding with debugging in your kernel config:


And then figure out why you can't build the ath tools.

The output from athstats will likely be helpful.

The reset stuff is interesting - it means the NIC is taking way too
long to finish some task. Normally grabbing that lock doesn't take too
long, but something has your NIC angry.

Yes, please compile up athstats at least. :-)
