Re: Kernel hang on i386 running 6.1.3

Yeah, I didn't think it was simple but it's a nice thought. 

I haven't been able to get into ddb when it hangs.  I thought this might be 
because of the setting on onpanic in sysctl.conf, but setting it to "1" didn't 
help and I noticed after the system comes up that someplace it gets reset back 
to "0".   Didn't think at the time to set it manually back to "1" after the 
system is up.

The good news (for me) is I found a card at MicroCenter that works.  It's a 
TP-Link TL-WN951N with a Vendor/Device code of 168c/0029, so it's still using 
the ath driver but it's using a different set of code.  Version 1 of this card 
has a Vendor/Device code of 168c/0023 and this new card is labeled as having 
Version 3.2 firmware.

I'm not sure it's worth the effort to try and find out what's wrong with the 
code or DWL-G520 card that I have, but if someone wants to try I'm willing to 
donate it to them.  It's of no use to me now.
