Hey Daniel,

Very cool! I took a look at bumping hostapd to a newer snapshot from master and I gave up because the patch refresh got really hairy and I didn’t have the time to figure it out (I barely had time for the mac80211 update). When you say “current release” of hostapd, do you mean a newer snapshot of master? The newest release that I can see on the hostapd website is 2.3 released on 2014-10-09 and OpenWRT uses a snapshot of master from 2014-10-25. I just want to make sure we’re all on the same page.

The initial work I did was to update mac80211 to wireless-testing master-2015-02-09, but since then I have updated to master-2015-03-09. All of the work I have done can be found on github:
