local_bh_enable() was called in hard irq context. This is probably a bug

	In this case, the code return a -E2BIG to user space. The
corresponding application should show something, either an error
message (what a concept) or a degradation of its functionality.
	In this case 8B1B is "get ESSID", so some apps is not showing
the ESSID, that should be obvious to spot. I would look at old
versions of Wavemon and Korinoco. I don't know if any of the signal
strength meter show the ESSID.

	Yeah, that would be a possibility, but I believe this problem
is on the way out, so I was more planning to remove the message in
future release to minimise the bloat.
	Have fun...
