See my other comment...  I fundamentally disagree that HostAP must be in 
the tree before 802.11 stack work can commence.

I would be willing to create a "wireless-2.6" branch of netdev, and 
maintain patches in there [posted to netdev, of course] until the 802.11 
stack is ready to merge.  That might be a more reasonable approach, and 
we could put HostAP in there.
