QCA 802.11n chips (especially AR9330/AR9340) sometimes end up in a state in
which a read of AR_CFG always returns 0xdeadbeef. This should not happen
when when the power_mode of the device is ATH9K_PM_AWAKE.

This problem is not yet detected by any other workaround in ath9k. No way
is known to reproduce the problem easily.

The chip is switching seemingly random into a state which can be described
as "deaf". No or nearly no interrupts are generated anymore for incoming
packets. Existing links either break down after a while and new links will
not be established.

The driver doesn't know if there is no other device available or if it
ended up in an "deaf" state. Resetting the chip proactively avoids
permanent problems in case the chip really was in its "deaf" state but
maybe causes unnecessary resets in case it wasn't "deaf".

v2:
 - reduce amount of possible goto-raptor attacks by one (thanks Kalle Valo)

This problem was discovered in mesh setups. It was noticed that some nodes
were not able to see their neighbors (mostly after running for a while) -
even when those neighbors received data from them via IBSS. A simple `iw
dev wlan0 scan` fixed the problem for them. But the problem seems to
reappear after while(tm) in a large enough(tm) mesh.

This patch is a little bit obscure because it requires CONFIG_ATH9K_DEBUGFS
to actually work. But there still seems to be potential interest in
Freifunk communities or Freifunk meta-projects (e.g. freifunk-gluon). It is
currently not known if it helps them but publishing this to allow them to
test and play around with it will not hurt :)

What kind of setup?
Using 802.11s?

I ask this because I have almost completed a patch for authsae that 
checks rekey.

The problems there might show as the behaviour described here.
