You may try to produce a wpa_supplicant.conf with the exact parameters
you see in nwa.conf, and start/stop wpa_suppliant to see if it
reproduces the oops.
The only think I guess *may* be different is that when NWA quits it
does not kill wpa_supplicant, but simply remove all network definition
and remove eth0 from managed interfaces. So it may trigger some
actions that may reveal hidden kernel bugs not usual on other wifi
Anyway the problem should be fixed in kernel space ;)
Paul, count me as a patch tester!
