The problem is in the rtl8187 driver.

They are calling usb_control_msg and passing a pointer to a buffer on
the stack. See drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187.h for where the
problem happens in numerous places.

Also it looks like rtl8225_write_8051() is incorrect. You are passing a
pointer to a variable that was passed as an argument. I don't know
where that is supposed to be on, somewhere on the stack I guess.

Larry, care to fix this up?

thanks,

greg k-h
