Bad kernel driver.
I tested driver included in vanilla 2.4.31 and have got this error.
I have downloaded latest prism54 driver (compile it as module) and it

This is an option in hostapd.conf (just hash it).

I have another problem with WPA in hostapd. I'm still getting error
message about "privacyinvoked". As i see in old driver version(prism54)
there is this function. But in new version it isn't. So now I can't run
hostapd with WPA support on prism54 :-(
