[OpenWrt-Devel] Fwd: [PATCH] hostapd: wpad init script renamed

When hostapd is launched as /etc/init.d/wpad it appears in a different
location under "ubus call service list" presenting problems with scripts
/lib/netifd/hostapd.sh and /lib/netifd/wireless/mac80211.sh.  Either
these scripts need to be patched to recognise the move, or the
init.d script needs to be renamed to hostapd.  This patch renames the
init.d script as unidentified things may also depend upon the placement
of entries within ubus output.  This ubus change only came about on the
8 April 2020 and it is unlikely that very much code has been written or
re-written to support the renaming.  Problem is manifested in log files
as "/usr/sbin/wpad does not match process  path (/proc/exe)"
