Any clue if these fixes are going to make it into Openwrt / LEDE  18.06 . So I can begin testing.

I haven't tested the current state but this was basically breaking encrypted mesh + AP (AP never came up). Problem was the code (OpenWrt specific) in wpa_supplicant which called STOP_AP via this socket.
