I have the latest ndiswrapper as pulled from svn about an hour ago compiled
against vanilla 22.214.171.124 kernel on a gentoo box. Hardware is an Intel Core2
Quad CPU Q9550 and a Trendnet TEW-643PI wireless card (Realtek 8190 chipset).
I have the correct drivers for 64-bit Windows XP, and ndiswrapper installs
them without a hitch, but ifconfig wlan0 up causes a not-quite system hang.
One CPU core is stuck at 100%, load averages go berserk and the whole system
slows down to a snail's pace.
Does ndiswrapper have documented problems with multi-core systems? Or is there
something else going on here?
