And it will receive lots of other packets, too, and as such, it would

Well, no. If ifname is br0, all the driver ioctls fail..
One way of working arund this is to open two l2_packet sockets. One for
wpa_s->ifname (e.g., ath0) and another one for bridge. wpa_s->ifname
must be pointing to the real wlan device, but EAPOL frames will be
received from the bridge interface.
