This looks to me like a possible memory leak somewhere, but I'm no 
expert.  (Unless cerowrt is using tmpfs and filling up memory with logs, 
of course.)  Is UDP from the wired side to the Internet also OK?  I'm 
assuming it is, but it would be nice to prove that it is actually a leak 
in ath9k and/or the wireless stack first!
