This sounds like ieee80211 module with its version of crypto code gets
loaded first. This will likely cause problems since that version has
been modified from the original code in Host AP driver. I would suggest
trying to prevent ieee80211 from being loaded and make sure that the
Host AP version of crypto gets used here.
