HostAP driver on iPAQ

I am trying to build and install the Prism2 HostAP driver onto an iPAQ 3600. I'm using the cross-compile tools and 2.4.16 kernel downloaded from and the latest Prism2 driver (04-07) for the build. The driver builds and installs alright (in fact when I plug the Linksys WPC11 into the pcmcia sleeve, it automatically loads prism2.o), but when I run "iwconfig wlan0" on the iPAQ it causes a "Segmentation Fault". Now, I can't remove the driver without crashing the kernel. "ifconfig wlan0 down" hangs. Removing the card also crashes the kernel.

Anyone have ideas on the correct procedure to build this driver for the iPAQ, please let me know. I was thinking, maybe the CFLAGS in the Makefile need to be changed, but not sure to what.
