[LEDE-DEV] ath9k stability in LEDE master branch - kernel panic every ~5 minutes

Hi all,

This is triggered by the airtime fairness patches for ath9k being present.

When this is disabled via:

echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath9k/airtime_flags
echo 0 > /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy1/ath9k/airtime_flags

... these kernel panics do not occur.

I perhaps erroneously requested that #473 be closed as I, personally,
have an easy workaround.


Could this be reopened if there is interest in finding the root cause
with a view to finding a code change to stop this from occurring?
