Today I tried the rc2 version (with the hangcheck-reset disabled with an =
extra return-statement). It looks like it works, but I can't test it =
completely, the WLAN authentication servers are down at the moment =
because of some wireless network troubles here at the university. As =
soon as the network is available again, I can try the functionality of =
the 0.8-rc2 completely.
But when unloading the module (via rmmod or via modprobe -r) the module =
gives a kernel Oops. This is fully reproducable (i.e. it happens every =
time...). Versions 0.8-rc1 (with the patch from this mailing list =
applied) and 0.7 gave no problems.
I'll copy some of the oops information (have to do this by hand, so if =
you need more, just ask...):
