If anyone else encounters this or a similar issue it was caused by a
broken udev rule. To work around this bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=753648 I had the following
rule, but with a spurious newline:
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="rt2500pci", KERNEL=="wlan*",
RUN="/sbin/iw $name set power_save off"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="rt2500pci",
KERNEL=="wlan*", RUN="/sbin/iw $name set power_save off"
