Ah, this looks promising.  Please attach full "dmesg" output, or if it is
too long, everything starting a few lines before the first WARNING and
ending at "cut here".

Also, could you try connecting using "iw" and sending the associated
logs?  Like this:

	apt-get install iproute iw
	ifdown wlan0

	# in one terminal:
	iw event -t

	# in another terminal:
	ip link set wlan0 up
	iw dev wlan0 connect -w <SSID> key d:0:<key>
	dhclient wlan0; # or use the usual "ip" magic to set a static IP
	ip link set wlan0 down
	dmesg | tail

Thanks and hope that helps,
