I tried to run hostap version 0.2.6 soekris net4826 with metrix pebble 
The problem is whenever hostap driver module is inserted, system is locked.
I traced it with lots of printk and I learned that It is locked inside file 

hfa384x_cmd_issue {

        HFA384X_OUTW(entry->param0, HFA384X_PARAM0_OFF);
        HFA384X_OUTW(entry->param1, HFA384X_PARAM1_OFF);
        HFA384X_OUTW(entry->cmd, HFA384X_CMD_OFF);
        entry->issued = 1;

       spin_unlock_irqrestore(&local->cmdlock, flags); <======= Locked here

I googled it and found there was some discuss ( )
on similar problem long time ago but it was not as serious as mine.
Is there any patch that I should apply?

Thank you for your help
