CVS version hangs the computer

Hi Jouni,

        just trying the CVS version with 2.4.18 and 2.4.19. Both -vanilla- kernels plus hostap_cs hangs the computer very hard. The screen error is related to the "swapper" and "killing an interrupt". OTH, Prism2-2002-05-19 works nicely (I know lot of things have changed...).

The only _possible_ pattern I found is that occurs after few minutes of the last ethernet package. Before I tried ping floods between de AP and the clients and between clients and everything goes smooth, but after few minutes the machines dies.

I am using a Conceptronic card, with WEP enabled and kernel bridging on a Digital (Pentium 120) laptop with RedHat 7.2. I've upgraded wireless-tools to the rpm provided by RedHat in RawHide (wireless-tools-24-2).

Hope this helps.

If you need additional testing, just tell me.
