I am trying to call some ioctl handler function, exactly 
hostap_join_ap() from interrupt context( For example, from 
hostap_getscanresults() - this function is called when scanning is done 
in firmware).
When I call the ioctl function directly in the interrupt context, I got 
an error.
Is there any good way for it?

I was trying to use wireless_send_event() for it. But, it seems hostAP 
driver cannot catch(or handle) the event that is sent from 
Is there any way for catching(or handling) the event that is sent from 
wireless_send_event() in hostAP driver?
Thank you,
