Userspace software such as hostapd or wpa_supplicant cannot be held
responsible for kernel panics.

Kernel panic is a kernel issue and should be reported as such, that is,
to the list about the appropriate driver (MadWifi in this case),
complete with the versions of the software involved (kernel and MadWifi)
and the backtrace from the kernel log.
