Memory leak / dmesg

We have a Prism / hostap dual-radio wrap box that has been running fine for months until rather recently, when it began to show a severe memory leak that kills the box about every half hour or so. Looking at dmesg I'm seeing a lot of the following new stuff, and am wondering if this is related to our problem. Can anyone let me know what this "extra data 10 bytes / 16 bytes" thing is about, and what we can do to rectify it?

Thanks...
