Im not entirely convinced that it has anything to do with the hostap driver, but was hoping that someone might make something of the following dump the computer took...

Any change of getting the first error message resolved to symbols with
ksymoops? If you have from the kernel and hostap*.o from the
build host and copy /proc/ksyms and /proc/modules from the device after
this crash, you should have most of the needed files for ksymoops.
Please at least try to figure out which function crashed (at address
c011400d) and what called that function (c28d7333). I would assume that
the first one is from the kernel proper and the second one is from a
kernel module; probably hostap.o or hostap_plx.o.

I have not tested hostap_plx.o at all lately, so I would not be too
surprised if I missed something when doing cleanup for the struct
net_device, etc.
