Ralink RT2800 Warning TX status: filling logs fix

sudo iwconfig wlan1 power off

is the command that might save dozens of dmesg logs per second. According to man iwconfig it disables power management.

Detailed Symptoms

I have some of the ubiquitous USB Wifi sticks with a chipset using the Ralink rt2800 driver. I noticed that while it works fine, I got a lot of dmesg errors like:

rt2800usb_txdone: Warning - Got TX status for an empty queue 2, dropping rt2800usb_entry_txstatus_timeout: Warning - TX status timeout for entry 14 in queue 2
