With the latest CVS (~2300hr Aug 31) I have an oops as soon as a client tries to talk to the AP. The oops trace is worthless, but it starts out as a "BUG in skbuff.c:92", which is during skb_put(). I'll see if I can track it down to a specific call from the hostap driver.

I wasn't seeing this in Aug 19 bits, but when I tried to revert the problem stuck around.

BTW, when updating CVS I now get:

cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `/cvs/hostap/www' (/cvs/hostap/www/#cvs.lock): Permission denied cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/cvs/hostap/www' cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
