Comment(by budfive):

 I just found a 100% reproducible trigger for a kernel oops (NULL
 dereference in wmi_powermode_cmd). Hopefully this is related to all of the
 crashes. Steps:

 [load ar6000.ko or turn on the wifi via bind]
 ifconfig eth0 up
 ifconfig eth0 down
 iwconfig eth0 power off

 With stock shr-unstable and the stock kernel, ar6000 is compiled into the
 kernel, so to turn on the wifi you need to

 echo "s3c2440-sdi" > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/s3c2440-sdi/bind

 If this crashes the driver for others, we should set the reproducible
