Bug#353023: same here, blacklisting hostap_cs works

I have exactly the same problem. I've blacklisted hostap_cs
(blacklisting hostap did not work, since hostap_cs uses/needs hostap not
the other way) and wlan worked again.

Will blacklisting hostap_cs be ennabled by default as a fix for this
bug? I think it's reasonable. If a user want to run an AP he has to
install some extra software anyway, so it should be okay to assume that
he can manually load the hostap driver.

If blacklisting hostap_cs will not be enabled by default, it should be
at least assured that not two drivers for one hardware are loaded.

Kind regards
