Now i can reproduce it :)

Hm.. There is no way i can guarantee that underlying mdio system is
not using mutexes. So, i can't read stats directly from HW within
ar9331_get_stats64(), only driver internal storage can be used. It is possible
to poll it more frequently, but  it make no reals sense on this low power
devices.

What kind of options do we have?

Regards,
Oleksij
