Receiving RSSI information on a per-packet basis in AP mode?

I'm trying to collect RSSI information for associated stations on a per-packet basis.  I understand that HostAP will report the Prism2 AVS header information when configured in RFMON mode with "prism2_control monitor_type 2" (ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM), but I'd like to be able to capture this information about associated stations while in master mode.

I noticed that HostAP will keep track of some client statistics in /proc/net/hostap/wlan0/$STAMAC, but I'd like to get RSSI on a per-packet basis.

Any suggestions?
