Hi,

Setup info:

Linux: mips le, 2.6.29 on ViXS XC4200 SoC
Ath9k from compat-wireless-3.6.8-1-snpc
wpa_supplicant 2.0

Only using wpa_supplicant, no network-manager etc.

I see a system reboot after following (or similar) (formatted) logs:

Sometimes, a bunch of similar blocks of logs print together.

I am not sure what's causing this. *Any* pointers would be helpful. 

I am no expert in wireless tech, but am tasked with implementing basic wifi feature-set  for the product.

Thanks and Regards
