Incidentally, me and some of my clients see a periodic "ath0: hardware
error, resetting" on a bunch of Soekris net4526s running in ad hoc mode.
Coincidentally (?), but the period is about 62 seconds, i.e., two
re-calibration intervals.

Sometimes we see a continuous stream of "ath0: hardware error" until
the watchdog timer expires.
