rtl8187 kernel module hangs after "heavy" load

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: module, rtl8187 Cc:


Hi there,
I use an rtl8187 connected via USB to a WNDR3700v2.
the current build from trunk still has this error.

Linux OpenWrt 3.10.36 #1 Mon Jun 16 06:32:09 UTC 2014 mips GNU/Linux



when under load, I get the following messages:

[ 2440.500000] ieee80211 phy0: wlan0: No probe response from AP c0:4a:xx:xx:xx:xx after 500ms, disconnecting.
[ 2696.810000] ieee80211 phy0: Reset timeout!

after these messages the kernel-module hangs, ifdown and ifup won't work anymore unplugging and replugging the USB-device also doesn't help.
However a quick

rmmod rtl8187
modprobe rtl8187

fixes the issue for some time.
