Ath driver still buggy.

Me and a couple of my friends work on small freebsd version for embedded systems. We all noticed that our wifi cards with atheros chip have problems with the ath driver. The system keeps on spitting out following messages before the link, that is already very slow dies:
ath_rate_ctl: 54M -> 48M (0 ok, 3 err, 3 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 48M -> 36M (0 ok, 1 err, 1 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 36M -> 24M (0 ok, 1 err, 1 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 24M -> 36M (11 ok, 0 err, 0 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 36M -> 48M (23 ok, 0 err, 0 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 48M -> 36M (0 ok, 2 err, 2 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 36M -> 24M (3 ok, 7 err, 7 retr)
ath_rate_ctl: 24M -> 18M (0 ok, 1 err, 1 retr)
And ping requests end up with following message:
ping: sendto: No buffer space available
This was tested running 11a and 11g with PCMCIA and mini-PCI cards.
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0x88010000-0x8801ffff irq 11 at device 0.0 on cardbus1

Any solution for that Sam? I can remember you mentioned you have fix for that a couple of weeks ago and that you will submit it in a week time or so.
