I have a report of a user having problems ifrename'ing an interface that
uses hostap.  Quoting the bug report:

"Card inserts normally as wlan0.  ifrename renames the card to e200
on MAC address per /etc/iftab.  Removing the card, with the interface up
or down, then produces:

hostap_cs: Driver unloaded
Badness in remove_proc_entry at fs/proc/generic.c:688
 [<c018c83a>] remove_proc_entry+0x10a/0x150
 [<c8e490b2>] hostap_exit+0x32/0x64 [hostap]
 [<c0133cf3>] sys_delete_module+0x153/0x190
 [<c014baf0>] sys_munmap+0x50/0x80
 [<c0106109>] sysenter_past_esp+0x52/0x71"

This is with hostap-driver-0.2.5 and linux 2.6.9.  Note that they also
have issues w/ the MAC address after an ifrename, as well.  The original
bug reports can be seen here:
