I'm not completely sure I understood what version of gcc you used when
the system locked up. Was the kernel compiled with different gcc that
Host AP module? If yes, that will in many cases cause random looking
errors (gcc 2.9* vs. 3.* _will_ result in incompatible code). Can you
reproduce the lockup when both the kernel and the Host AP modules are
compiled with the same compiler version?
