FS#1180 - Buffalo WZR-600DHP: Wifi drops out every few hours

Every few hours, the Wifi on my WZR-600DHP drops out. It comes back on, but the drop out is annoying (in part, because I have at least two devices I must reboot to get reconnected).

I’ve identified the problem as caused by package/kernel/mac80211/patches/305-ath9k-limit-retries-for-powersave-response-frames.patch - if I neuter this (by forcing ps=false), the problem goes away. To identify the cause, I bisected the entire LEDE git history going back to 2012 (Attitude Adjustment), so I can also confirm that the problem has existed ever since the patch was first introduced in b30e092de65ca7be7cb277f934016484137d924c (July 2015).
