    I think this is. It's interesting though that it is deauthenticating --
    is there anything in the log before? But since you bisected it to the TX
    sync commit, I'd say let's try the below patch. You might have to adjust
    the iwl-mac80211.c file to iwl-agn.c, I'm not entirely sure what version
    has the moved code.

    Please let me know -- this commit is probably the right thing to do
    until we get rid of tx_sync completely.
