As some have reported, including myself, a modprobe -r
ath_pci locks the machine of those affected hard.
I've been tracing the executing during modprobe -r,
and have found that commenting out this line in
if_ath.c (BSD branch) in function ath_stop seems to
resolve the problem:
Line 1163: ath_hal_setpower(sc->sc_ah,
The module can then be loaded and unloaded without
What is the purpose of that line during modprobe -r?
Isn't power shut off after the card is disabled?
