I think this is related to a bug in the HAL we use that causes excessive
numbers of PHY errors.  It is fixed in newer HALs.  You can pick up a
later HAL version from FreeBSD or Linux, or you can try again after
I import the latest net80211 and ath(4) from FreeBSD.  My earliest
opportunity to re-import from FreeBSD will be February 2.
