    staging: rtl8188eu: Fix module loading from tasklet for WEP encryption · 7775665a

    Commit 2b2ea09e ("staging:r8188eu: Use lib80211 to decrypt WEP-frames")
    causes scheduling while atomic bugs followed by a hard freeze whenever
    the driver tries to connect to a WEP-encrypted network. Experimentation
    showed that the freezes were eliminated when module lib80211 was
    preloaded, which can be forced by calling lib80211_get_crypto_ops()
    directly rather than indirectly through try_then_request_module().
    With this change, no BUG messages are logged.
