I have a simular problem, but it happends as soon I access the network.
The messages are folloing a "Unable to handle NULL pointer deference"
It seems that my problem is not hostap related cause I have the kernel
panic without the
hostap too, only without the SW TICK stuck messages every 2 secs.
I hope this can even help.
More information about the HostAP
