Firmware 0.7.6 is extremely old.  The latest available version of firmware
for this card is 1.7.1.  I don't think HostAP will work properly with so
old firmware.  Notwithstanding, it shouldn't crash.

Firmware and links to documentation can be found here:

See Documentation/oops-tracing.txt in Linux kernel sources.
