  zd1211rw Stops working after some time

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using this USB Wifi dongle (according to lsusb):

  Bus 001 Device 004: ID 050d:705c Belkin Components F5D7050 Wireless G
  Adapter v4000 [Zydas ZD1211B]

  and dmesg has this description of the device:

  [   41.689339] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: firmware version 4725
  [   41.749390] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: zd1211b chip 050d:705c v4810 full 00-1c-df AL2230_RF pa0 g--NS

  At some point, with no pattern I can discern, it stops working, and starts spitting this into dmesg:
  [  243.346810] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -110
  [  243.450915] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -110
  [  243.502925] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -110
  [  243.554961] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -110
  (.. and so on)

  110 is ETIMEDOUT btw.

  If I remove and plug back in, I see

  [ 4638.146279] usb 3-5: USB disconnect, device number 3
  [ 4659.745881] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -19
  [ 4659.745957] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -19
  [ 4659.745967] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -19
  [ 4659.745971] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -19
  [ 4659.745974] zd1211rw 3-5:1.0: error ioread32(CR_REG1): -19
  (.. and so on)

  The only way I've found of fixing the problem is to reboot. It is
  necessary to reboot via the "reisub" method as when this problem
  occurs shutting down "properly" gets stuck while the Ubuntu splash is
  on the screen. I can't seem to find a way to dump the kernel log at
  that time, could anyone tell me how?

  This is probably a duplicate of #406484, but according to the kernel
  bug duplicate policy
  (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Policies/DuplicateBugs), I've created
  a separate one.

  Sorry, I don't really have time to test a newer/upstream kernel right
  now but I'll get back if I get a chance. Also, it's just occured to me
  that it's not impossible that my hardware is faulty.

  I've attached a dmesg from when the problem is occuring.
