I am working with a new kernel

Here's the kernel config
https://paste.pound-python.org/show/CTrMyIZpC46DGjTF4Eut/



But my new kernel doesn't seem to work, and it is panicking every time the wireless interface gets loaded....maybe a conflict with wl broadcom driver???
Maybe something else I don't know.

The reason that I rebuilt the kernel was to attempt to enable nat in iptables so that I could share the internet connection from wifi over ethernet using the following command:
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

Initially the execution of the command outputted complaint about no nat and iptables, but since then I have followed the wiki for iptables however confusing there is what it says are the kernel changes that need to be made. They are separated into 3 categories (client, router, and I guess common for the third)... Which of these will fit my situation, and is the config above appropriate for what I'm trying to do? In terms of the kernel panic, and what might be causing it...I'm just guessing one of these things:

1) Too many or not enough kernel settings with respect to ip tables
2) It could already be resolved since I was missing a package which was net-firewall/ipset that I just installed
3) I could be needing to do some funny stuff like rebuilding the out of kernel modules for wl drivers?
4) There could be some naturally conflicting modules here with broadcom wl?
5) Or I could have misconfigured the kernel in terms of options in there. Therefore, I will shortly post my kernel configuration...once I get rebooted on that machine with older kernel....


Could someone help to look it over and tell me what may be leading to the problem with putting up my wireless interface in the first place so that I to the same panic result.

Here's the kernel log
(I can't seem to find a record of the panic in the kernel...where in the logs is that generally stored?

My kernel was improperly configured and/or reinstalling the out of kernel modules helped. Whatever it was I went back over made the changes and now I am fixed up, with better results.
