I am also trying to get WPA over WDS working. While I made some good
progress, I found some problems, and I will appreciate some feedback
about them:

In hostapd the folllowing structure in hostapd.h

struct ieee80211_hdr {
	u16 frame_control;
	u16 duration_id;
	u8 addr1[6];
	u8 addr2[6];
	u8 addr3[6];
	u16 seq_ctrl;
	/* followed by 'u8 addr4[6];' if ToDS and FromDS is set in data frame
} __attribute__ ((packed));

Is already stating that WDS links are not supported. We should provide
a way of translating so the castings will work right when receiving
wds frames. I began working on that.

In a related question, and to know if "on the fly" wds links can be
created, is possible to scan or associate in Master Mode? My
experience is that is not, but maybe somebody in the list have an
insight on that ;)

All right, any comments on the subject will be appreciated,
