Description J.R. Oldroyd 2009-05-16 21:10:05 UTC
The ral(4) inferface repeatedly goes down and up even when in close proximity
to the access-point.

boot stuff:

May 10 07:11:29 xx kernel: ral0: [ITHREAD]

How-To-Repeat: 1. enable ral(4) driver.
2. wait a while.
3. look at syslog:

May 16 12:02:17 xx kernel: ral0: link state changed to UP
May 16 12:02:27 xx kernel: ral0: link state changed to DOWN
