    Maybe I missed it, but did you actually request the -stable team to
    take the patch? -stable helps more than just Ubuntu... :-)

    Greg (or Chris or...), the patch in question is here:

    ath5k: Wakeup fixes

    * Don't put chip to full sleep because there are problems during
    wakeup. Instead hold MAC/Baseband on warm reset state via a new
    function ath5k_hw_on_hold.

    * Minor cleanups
