I've checked the difference between 2.6.31-18 and 2.6.33-rc6-wl which 
I'm using and do not found much differences in the driver code except : 
rate table (needed by minstrel), retry count register (reduced from 2 to 
0), BSSID (only in my tree). For mac80211, there are lots of 
differences, so I cannot tell.

I've run an iperf client on my laptop for several hours and :
- first disconnect after 2h30
- second disconnect after 3h (some beacon loss messages after only 2h)
- third disconnect after 15min

My feeling is that either something is wrong in the RX path (so beacons 
are properly sent by the AP, but not received by zd1211rw and as such, 
not received by mac80211) or we transmit so much that the AP cannot 
transmit beacon anymore.

I'll do more test. What TX throughput do you achieve (specifically 
during ftp upload) ?
