I guess back at the days of subversion nobody really left more than
one line of a commit message. So what you see above is all there is.

No and at least I believe it would be quite difficult to do so.
The direction of the hostap project seems to be to cover most AP
functionality in wpa_supplicant and have a single process for all
virtual interfaces (or even all radios in a system).
This is how it is done on Android or how NetworkManager creates
a tethering AP.
On OpenWrt we do things differently and run hostapd for all AP
interfaces and wpa_supplicant for all client and mesh interfaces of
an individual radio. Only this makes signalling between hostapd and
