ath5k and mac80211 on ar711x ( RB433ah)

I compiled the ath5k driver and mac80211 of compat-wireless using mips (uclibc) tool chain. When I bring the wlan0 interface up using these modules, the processor reboots. But when i use the ath5k driver and mac80211 given in the packages folder of openwrt ((kmod-ath5k_2.6.26.5+2008-08-06-ar71xx-1_mips.ipk), the interface works fine. I disassembled both the ath5k.ko files given in the website and my ath5k.ko file.Both ath5k.ko files had several differences. Are there any patches to be patched for the compat wireless before compiling it. Please reply at the earliest. I have to change some codes in ath5k and mac80211. that is why i have to compile it from the source code.
