Do you run any monitoring software that is displaying update wireless
interface statistics etc. periodically? RID FDC6 is read only for couple
of read ioctls. Such a program seemed to have started ioctl(), but it
was then interrupted (e.g., by killing the process).

Could you please re-test this with BAP busy timeout set to some insanely
large value? To do this, change following line in hostap_hw.c:

#define HFA384X_BAP_BUSY_TIMEOUT 1500


#define HFA384X_BAP_BUSY_TIMEOUT 100000

This will make the driver to wait up to a second before reporting
timeout on BAP access.
