Bug#628444: iwlagn - "MAC is in deep sleep", cannot restore wifi operation

[MV] Hmm...this is interesting. Can you load the iwlwifi module with bt_coex_active=0 and see if it changes anything? One of the patches that went in between 2.6.38 and 2.6.39 changed the behaviour of coexistence with Bluetooth devices on some platforms, and caused users some grief; although their symptoms were different. The module parameter I mention above solved this problem for them.

[MV] Oh...I was asking about hardware...who is the manufacturer of your system?

[MV] Interesting as well.

[MV] Hmm...the queue stuck patch could potentially help here, but only provided that a queue was stuck prior to the reconnect. Your log doesn't run that far back, so I'm not able to say. :-)
