That is not normal. I wonder if those issues are also triggered by the misbehaving atheros driver? Does the pci=nomsi kernel parameter rid you of them?

There's probably a more focused way to turn off msi for only the atheros driver. We can try poking more at that after hearing back from other folks here.
