hostapd 0.3.9 and madwifi HEAD

I've got madwifi head branch and hostapd 0.3.9 sources compiled and
loading fine on my IXP425 platform with a kernel.

There seems to be a problem with private IOCTL's... For instance, when
I configure hostapd for a WPA-PSK AP, I get the following errors when
a station tries to associate and authenticate...

ath0: STA 00:09:5b:84:b0:b8 IEEE 802.11: associated
ioctl[IEEE80211_IOCTL_DELKEY]: No such file or directory
ioctl[IEEE80211_IOCTL_SETMLME]: No such file or directory
ath0: STA 00:09:5b:84:b0:b8 IEEE 802.11: deauthenticated due to local deauth request
ath0: STA 00:09:5b:84:b0:b8 IEEE 802.11: deassociated

I've had a look at the sources and both madwifi and hostapd reference
these IOCTL's, what is generating the error?

Regards, Dan...
