Yeah, you're right:

# grep rtl8192se dump_dma_k3.19.4.log | wc -l
6789
#
# grep rtl8192se dump_dma_k3.17.8.log | wc -l
162
#

So, wlan driver would be the real culprit then..?
I would have never thought...

I guess I'm gonna test 3.19.4 once more (just to be sure) with
rtl8192se removed and see what happens.

Thanks!
Jake
