Is there any reason you cannot use the normal WEXT driver? Why does the
kernel driver not support WEXT correctly? It would be preferable to
re-use as much existing code as possible, which means less work for you.

Depends; if the changes are general enough (and since you haven't
included them, there's no way to figure that out) then they might be
appropriate for wpa_supplicant. But the only way to figure that out is
to review the changes first :)
