Note that the problem necessitating use of irqpoll in the first place
seems to only happen under certain conditions. I am unsure what these
conditions are. Before 'ath9k: connectivity is lost after Group
rekeying is done', I had used rmmod/modprobe as my solution to the
issue, which triggered the IRQ issue.

Sorry, but in the past I've posted to linux-wireless, ath9k-devel, and
all the maintainers of ath9k and didn't get a single response (except
a 'me too' from a fellow ath9k user). I didn't just want to hear
crickets this time.
