The change around Line 212 looks like the reason.

I'm still looking into those other problems.  I found another issue
though, which I'm unsure of the exact cause (seems related to hostap
module).  I get this from time to time:

Badness in local_bh_enable at kernel/softirq.c:140

Might not be a MIPS related problem though.  Seems line 140 is
"WARN_ON(irqs_disabled());" which is at the beginning of
local_bh_enable.  Cheers.
