Regardless which direction the different is, this means extra work for
whoever is trying to use hostapd with a branch that differs from
wireless-dev.. I try to keep hostapd development branch up to date with
wireless-dev.git and if there are incompatible changes in other
branches, it is possible that hostapd compilation fails. That's what
people get with bleading edge code.. Anyway, this should become easier
once net/d80211 gets to main line kernel tree and hostapd can get more
permanent definition of the kernel interface.
