Thanks for doing the porting job :-)

Well.. All this is really Layer 2 related, and even lower. It is a
kind of bad handshake between the driver / HW / mac80211. So I
wouldn't think that NTP may hurt here. Although one should never

Thanks

I am already on week-end here and will look at it more carefully
later. First impression is that things are messy here. I guess we are
getting in a bad failure path that wasn't checked...
