    - The TCP listerner handling is now completely lockless.
    Whoa, Is this true? or have I misunderstood the context?

    Edit I took that to mean there would polling free port listening, but maybe I misunderstood.

      I guess it would be called "async socket IO" or something.
      Until then FDSET or epoll does the job.

              That could be a bios (ACPI) issue, or a driver issue. Is there a bug report made for it? Those types of problems tend to be pains in the asses to track down and fix since they can sometimes be computer model specific.

                Anyone knows a consumer product (no router SOCs) that uses the ath10k driver? I would like to upgrade my setup to ac wireless, but the only desktop cards I can find are Asus ones that use a Broadcom chipset, and that's a no-no.

                  Check out TP-LINK line of products, they use Atheros chips for most of their products...
