I've downloaded your patch with git, compiled and rebooted. Now I'm trying
to do exactly this, in a easy fashon, that is each virtual device has same MAC
and IP address but is connected to a different AP on the same channel. I
just need to do some testing.
Could you post an example code to set up multiple devices?

something I didn't really get is if the generic IEEE 802.11 stack needs a
custom driver or it can be used with current drivers, I'm using a PrismII
pci card.
