Problem description

Just after reboot vmstat -i shows about 60 interrupts/sec
irq16: ath0                        40558         66

But after some time (a few hours I think) irq rate starts to rise slowly.
After ~ 23 hours:
irq16: ath0                  12086600069     146845
After 23h+5 minutes:
irq16: ath0                  12154198114     147131
About 10 minutes later:
irq16: ath0                  12307854569     147771
irq16: ath0                  14089141951     154492

And so on up to about 280000/sec. AP mode stops functioning at some point.
It's a pretty old problem. However on older revs irq goes high immediately 
after boot, even if ath is not configured at all.
