This seems to showing some issues in completing 4-way handshake, but the
syslog information alone is not sufficient to tell what is happening.
This would require at least full debug log from hostapd (-ddt on command
line) and ideally a wireless sniffer capture showing what exactly
happens when the 6th station tries to connect. This does not really
sound like a hostapd issue, though, so the question would likely be more
appropriate for the driver maintainers. Anyway, they would need
additional debug information anyway.
