Subject[231/289] ath9k: fix timeout on stopping rx dma
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Felix Fietkau <>

commit d47844a014fada1a788719f6426bc7044f2a0fd8 upstream.

It seems that using ath9k_hw_stoppcurecv to stop rx dma is not enough.
When it's time to stop DMA, the PCU is still busy, so the rx enable
bit never clears.
Using ath9k_hw_abortpcurecv helps with getting rx stopped much faster,
with this change, I cannot reproduce the rx stop related WARN_ON anymore.
