Lots of missed beacons on 5ghz

Description

I noticed this ONLY on 5ghz band cards. (AR5006X) I had to go back to r3402 because it seems that it does not contain this problem (and network timeouts)

Acutally.. on b/g cards (AR5212) .. it's behaving awfull.. like 20 times slower and pings go high as 6sec for no apparent reason.

3402 seems all fine.. I'm just pointing that dev. turned wrong at some point.
