with your patch applied on a 3.3 kernel, nothing seems to change here
(AR9285 PCI express): if the card goes through the suspend/resume
cycle, or if I disable/re-enabled the wireless networking on the
network manager, I get the following messages:

[ 62.931045] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

[ 66.367504] wlan0: authentication with 00:26:44:68:e0:6f timed out

if I unload/reload the ath9k module, it works again, though:
