Hi!  I've never heard of a WUSB12 before.  I do know of three
variations of WUSB11, though (found in linux-wlan-ng and
atmelwlandriver sources):

1.  WUSB11v2.5, prism2 MAC, intersil RF.  USB vendor 0x066b, ID 0x2212
2.  WUSB11v2.6, atmel MAC, intersil RF.   USB vendor 0x066b, ID 0x2211
3.  WUSB11v2.6, atmel MAC, RFMD frontend. USB vendor 0x077b, ID 0x2219

Do you have one of these new WUSB12 NICs?  What are the USB
vendor/IDs for it?  Can you send lsusb output?

Not yet.  Hostap does not yet support USB interfaces.  I've been
trying to add support for it, for the last couple of weeks, but
I haven't gotten much of it working yet.  Is anyone else working
on USB support?
