What chipset does your laptop have? If it's Intel ICH10/generation 4.5, same here...
It looks like an interrupt problem and I'm currently debugging this, but it'll
take some time.

Could you please try 3.7.2?

I have crashes on 3.8 and 3.7.4, but not on 3.7.2.

Also, please post the full compile message output of hostapd.

Best regards,
