ccmp crashes kernel

caught a weird bug:
receiving a single arp packet always causes a kernel panic when ccmp is 

all seems to work fine when populating the arp cache manually (at least 
both ping and tcp)

some context information:
- Master mode
- kernel 2.4.20
- latest cvs version by pserver (but same problem with snapshot tar)
- Netgear MA311 PCI cards with firmware v1.3.6 (but updating does not help)

if it can help:
when tring to track the problem with some printk, I stopped before the 
skb_pull() instruction at line 978 in hostap_80211_rx.c

anyone have a clue, please?
