we are not aware of this issue. Can you try with a non-SMP kernel to see 
if there is a difference? Did you tried the previous version of the 
driver ( to see if you have the same issue? Please report the 
result of these test to support at linuxant.com.

All these tests should be done with 16K stacks kernels as we are aware 
of crash issues with 4K stacks kernels.
