A little more info:
This seems to happen with one Dell keyboard so far. Changing keyboards will cause the issue to disappear.

Enclosed is the output of dmesg -w. Look at [ 217.993749]. Hopefully it is helpful.

Hi @JonM, i think that you don't see the errors, because you haven't set up correctly the blue interface.
In my case the issue shows up when i enable hostapd and sent/receive some traffic over blue interface, and in parallel receiving/sending traffic over red and green interfaces. It seems like the hardware does not support too much traffic, maybe because all the three interfaces are using the same bus. I will try the new core 127, maybe works. I will post my tests in the next days.

Regards

@Challenger - I went from a red/green setup to a red/green/blue setup and I don't see the same errors. (disclaimer - I am not one of the experts. I am just a user like you).

My setup:
• Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
• IPFire 2.21 (armv5tel) - Core Update 126
green = Onboard LAN ethernet port - Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
red = USB-to-Ethernet adapter - Trendnet TU3-ETG (with AXIS AX88179 Gigabit internals)
blue = on-board wifi via sdio: brcmfmac
• addons = hostapd, nano, iperf3

I don't see any of the errors like the ones in your log and I don't have any of the kernel panics. But I also cannot get the hostapd add-on to work correctly. I cannot connect from the blue network to the Internet. I can access the IPFire box and connect to the WUI just fine. So I think I've set something wrong!

These are the only issues I see:

The WLAN Module on the RPi 3B+ doesn't work if the Region is not configured ("00"). Other modules falls back to "World" - channel 1-11 bg mode.
Configure your region on the WlanAP page in the webgui then the wlan should work.
