I fixed it this way, which should still work even if the kernel gets updated (I think). Add the following lines to your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file:

# these aes modules break the airo driver
blacklist padlock_aes
blacklist geode_aes

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modprobe#Blacklist:
"modprobe is a Linux program written by Rusty Russell used to add/remove a module to/from the Linux kernel"
"There are cases where two or more modules both support the same devices, or a module invalidly claims to support a device: the blacklist keyword indicates that all of a particular module's internal aliases are to be ignored."
