I'm getting loads of these errors in dmesg, and have been for a while now. I
have upgraded to kernel 220.127.116.11, ipw2200 1.1.4(mprq) and ieee80211 1.2.15.
hwcrypto is 0 and I get these messages when I should actually be receiving
broadcast arps or spanning tree hello messages (the access point is bridging
an atheros card and a wired interface, using hostapd with WPA2-EAP-TLS). The
client machine is a centrino laptop (so not smp).
Bit of a bummer to tell the truth, and I'm not sure what to do or how to
debug it. At first I wasn't overly concerned but I noticed that since
broadcast arps aren't getting through, arp isn't working, so wired hosts
can't initiate any communication with wireless clients.
