It's confusing because there are 8000~9000 interrupts per second even
though the association is not done yet and no traffic is pumped. It's
also way too many even the reception of the beacon frames triggers the
interrupt. This huge number overwhelms the normal interrupt we
expected from the register setting (only < 100/sec if runs with
rtlwif/rtl8192cu driver instead). It's difficult to judge where/why
the interrupts come from and what possible overhead it could possibly
incur.
