the solution described in the bug report
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1383184 (comment #150)
works perfectly for me. Wi-fi is stable without any drops and the 4.1.0-rc6-
wl-ath kernel doesn't cause any issues but the wi-fi performance comes only
to about 35%-40% of the performance on windows on the same machine downloading
the same file from the same server .
