Our AA related code assumes device pairs named wlanN/mshN.
On a machine with PCI wireless cards, the PCI device will take precedence and take the wlan0 name, so when the Libertas device comes up, it appears as wlan1/msh0. Our scripts ignore this and try to drive wlan0 as if it were the pair of msh0 -- the wlan0 driver gets confused/locked and all bets are off.
There is an easy solition for this: change our dev naming convention away from wlanX and leave wlanX for other autoconfigured wireless devices.
