The patch may work around the oops, but you can't pass a local (stack) variable
as a parameter for something that will exist outside of the scope of the call.
It will explode spectacularly later or, worse, cause memory corruption. Just
move it outside of the function to work around that.

Also if wpa_init_wpadev fails, it tears everything down and returns SUCCESS.

This driver needs help. A lot.
