After disabling power management (which I suspect may have already been
turned off by default), no change with this issue.

There is no specific fix for 2.6.32 as it seems to have resolved itself
in the current kernel release and from the comments, it appears the
developers were unable to bisect to the specific commit possibly due to
build problems over the range where the problem was introduced. Knowing
this issue is pegged to Debian stable might help move that effort
forwards so I'll post upstream as well.
Would an ath9k update be considered/possible at this point if a build
against current source resolves this issue?
