Anyone seeing problem with running out of credits?

Next on my bug list is a problem where the driver claims that
it has no more tx credits, and the firmware never releases any
more credits.

I generally see this after 'resetting' a bunch of station VIFs
several times.

The firmware does not crash, but perhaps it hangs.  I am using
a modified 10.1.389 firmware.

I have double checked the firmware and it appears it should
properly release the credits in all cases, but of course it
could still have issues.

The last command that received a credit and so was sent is 0x9011,
which appears to be vdev-create.

I am curious if anyone else has seen such problems in testing?
