Lately one of our APs started to spew a lot of the following messages:

dropped received packet from 00:60:b3:16:d3:67  with no ToDS flag (type=0x02, subtype=0x00)
RX status=0x0000 (port=0, type=0, fcserr=0) silence=5 signal=45 rate=110 rxflow=0; jiffies=58375341
  FC=0x0008 (type=2:0) dur=0x0000 seq=0x2ee0 data_len=66
  A1=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff A2=00:60:b3:16:d3:67 A3=00:00:00:00:00:00 A4=30:38:35:20:20:20
  dst=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff src=00:60:b3:16:d3:67 len=66

00:60:b3:16:d3:67 is not our client and is not associated by AP. Most
probably these packets are received from another wireless network.

Any ideas what it is, how fatal can it be and can these messages be
suppressed? I'm asking because suddenly we started to get problems with
one of our own clients associated to the AP, who sometimes cannot transmit
