ndiswrapper with bcmwl5.sys causes a kernel panic in 2.6.24.

Bug #181154 reported by Evan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.24 (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

Using, I get a kernel panic if I try to load ndiswrapper with it configured to use the bcmwl5.sys windows driver. This is a regression from Gutsy, where the 2.6.22-14 kernel works just fine in this situation.
