I would recommend testing the latest version of hostapd (0.4.5). The
driver interface has changed in madwifi and the older versions of
hostapd may not work with the current driver. I haven't tested hostapd
with madwifi for a while, but I'm certainly interested in getting this
working if there are some issues with the latest version of both
hostapd and madwifi.
