It seems that you are stucked with the Mesh initialization..
Do you need this feature?
While the advice is still upgrade the kernel, you can disable the mesh
support in:
-> Device Drivers
 -> Network device support (NETDEVICES)
  -> Wireless LAN (WLAN)
   -> Marvell 8xxx Libertas WLAN driver support (LIBERTAS)
    -> LIBERTAS_MESH [=n]


        Be Persistent!
