Hi Dirk,

The NULL pointer dereference in wlc_phy_chanspec_band_validch is already
fixed in edc7651f3a4ffa7fca37d92401562694121512ad. There was also
another related crash that appeared after the introduction of 802.11ad
support that's fixed in 32c336a5dfd16b4645c8a0dbc534efd02f079e02.

So in all likelihood whatever problem your seeing in current -git is a
different issue. One easy way to test this would be to prevent the
brcmsmac module from loading and verify that you still get the hang,
then rerun the bisection that way to keep those bugs from affecting your
results.

Cheers,
Seth
