That looks like an error message from wireless extensions code in the
kernel. Which version of the kernel are you using? That errors seems to
indicate that the request specified buffer size as 0.. That should
really not happen.. Which program was used to make those WE ioctl calls?
If it was wireless tools (e.g., iwconfig), which version of them?
