hostapd forking and enhancements

I have two suggestions:


1) hostapd should support forking. I have tried to use "hostapd &" on my
init scripts in order to get it loaded on startup but as soon as the
init script dies the hostapd dies with it.


2) The station authentication currently supports open access and mac
address list. It would very helpful if hostapd would add an option to
support the execution of an external bin for authentication. Perhaps it
can pass two arguments, the mac of wlan0 and the mac of the station and
based on the response from the bin it lets the station in .


Any comments?
