I have never used such card, but I hostap_plx has been reported to work
with Pheecom WL-PCI, which has same PCI id as your card.

Could you please send a bit more detailed info about this device
('lspci -vvd 15e8:0131')?

TMD7160 adapter was apparently found, but when the first control area
was written to (COR register), the following read from the same register
did not return the same value. I would assume that this indicates some
problems with I/O, but one could test ignoring this by commenting out
"goto fail;" line in the code snippet you quoted:

At least Host AP code has not changed on that part, so updating it
should not produce any difference.
