Hard lockup when connecting and disconnecting from ad-hoc networks

Reported by: Assigned to:

Patch is attached: 0 Pending: 0


Running the attached script i get madwifi drivers to hard lockup the computer. Once i got what i think it was a kernel oops but it was just partly on the screen and i could not scroll up/down because the screen was frozen as part of the hard lockup. I'll welcome any tips on getting the necessary info out of the pc.

There are other adhoc clients on the essid set by the script

lspci | grep Atheros

i left it running on a terminal and i got the following kernel oops, not sure if it is all as it filled all the screen, i'm attaching a photo of it, i'd say the quality is good enough to read it.
