I didn't notice anything in the past (as I wrote). But today I did some tests
for an updated version of the p54 mac80211 wlan driver and I noticed exactly
the same problem:

when booting with highres=off everything is fine.
But when I boot an highres enabled kernel and I do the iperf-test with the p54
driver, my systems becomes unresponsive during the test. It seems to be
exactly the same problem I have with the b44 driver.
So this might not be a bug in the b44 code but a bug somewhere in the linux
networking code.

I did the test with an 2.6.22-rc3-git4 kernel and the p54 driver built
external as module.
