Sounds good. Lets start :)

I will start with this point. Its a relative closed issue in source
code. There I can become acquainted with the source. First i will add a
struct to hostapd struct that holds all callback functions ond driver
specific issues (i guess there will be more than one later) and make 
code for initialise this structure. Second i will implement the
initialisation of this structure for host AP driver. The callback
function for host ap driver i will put to driver.c . The initialisation 
for ethernet and other drivers comes on later steps.
