This message appears for me exactly before the wireless connection drops on my Asus Z87-Pro motherboard. The wireless card in question is the:

Since todays kernel update (3.13.0-46.76 -> 3.13.0-46.77) I also see this message in my kern.log It has not been there before and I'm just wondering what will happen if this continues as the "too long" value seems to be continiously rising and the sample rate is being lowered

Happens on a KVM based Ubuntu 14.04 with 12GB RAM and 4 Cores. Also another problem is that IPv6 is not working any more during bootup after todays kernel update thus nginx can not bind to the IPv6 address given in the configuration and refuses to start up. Kernels should be tested more before releasing these updates...
