With 4.15.0-149 we included a change to mac80211 from stable 4.14.y

  "mac80211: do not accept/forward invalid EAPOL frames"

This was followed up with another patch to fix up memory corruption:

  "mac80211: fix memory corruption in EAPOL handling"

This appears to be the issue into which multiple laptop users are
running. The symptoms are various due to the nature of memory
