please advise, I face severe problem with my new PCIe wifi card (since
BCM4313, the one shipped with my netbook is not supported in FreeBSD, I
have purchased another one, authorized for use in my netbook) ...

the card is recognized well and I have no problem to configure it

after `ifconfig ath0 up' wireless module starts to work as expected, I
can ping and even can create working (for a short time) lagg(4)
interface ... but console starts output a lot of:

- ---[ quotation start ]-------------------------------------------
ath0: ath_edma_rxfifo_alloc: Q1: alloc failed: i=1, nbufs=128?
ath0: ath_edma_rxbuf_alloc: nothing on rxbuf?!
- ---[ quotation end   ]-------------------------------------------

and after some time (about 2-5 minutes) my netbook hangs (no keyboard,
no ssh) and only Ctrl-Alt-Del helps

here are the details:
