I have not tested the Linuxant driver loader, but I believe that is (or
at least was) the case. The open source ndiswrapper can be used with
ap_scan=2 mode to work with hidden SSIDs.

No, that would not work. For hidden SSIDs, you would either need to get
Linuxant to modify their code (probably also move to use something else
than driver_hostap.c in wpa_supplicant) or move to use ndiswrapper.
