Architecture: i386
Machine: i386

I get 5 kernel burps after the wifi has been configured, then it shuts up (which is better than it used to do in -5).  However, even though the wifi is attached to the router without issue, ierrors grow greater than the in/out packets.  It doesn't appear to affect traffic, since I seem able to max out in/out ok.  Just that ierrors look wrong in netstat and if there's a problem, it would be nice to know what it IS, since there's nothing in dmesg or messages or ifconfig that anything is actually wrong.

Turn it on, connect it. netstat -in over and over

identify if this is a warning, error, or non-issue and document it in ath man page.
