I cannot easily duplicate this. I have been trying to kill the AP by
TCP, UDP, and ping floods, but nothing seems to kill it. If it is indeed
AP only issue, it could require more 802.11 management frames
(authentication/association), etc.

Could you use serial console to get kernel messages from the AP? It is
quite difficult to figure this out without either being able to
reproduce it myself or getting more information. What kind of usage
patterns do you have with that AP? One station or more? Traffic from
wired to wireless, wireless to wired, wireless to wireless (i.e.,
between two STAs)? Do you use WEP?
