could you look into the sleepy thingy once more?
I recently had a little annoyance with my wlan, this happened two times :
- doing something not internet related (watching soccer dvb-t using kaffeine) longer than an hour
- lost my wlan internet connection
The same happened directly after this a second time the same conditions.
Why I think it is RIFS related: On Gentoo, normaly loosing connection it is sufficient to
rc-service dhcpcd restart
But I had to do:
rc-service dhcpcd stop
rc-service wpa_supplicant restart
rc-service dhcpcd start
Which indicates a more deeply my broadcom-sta-wl module involved ...
I think this is not related to the scheduler.(Maybe I have to do a test to prove)
Actually Linux kernel sucks with wireless
