hostapd-0.6.8 + madwifi + bridge + WPA-PSK

I was thinking it would be something like this. I'm guessing this  
commit is already in 0.6.8, and since its a change in the nl80211  
driver it should have nothing to do with my madwifi problem. It is  
strange that I have exactly the same behaviour with the madwifi  
driver. Perhaps I should dive into the code.

I notice that in driver_madwifi.c there is a goto bad statement after  
the "Configure bridge %s for EAPOL traffic." debug statement, which  
could mean that the interfacing with madwifi could go wrong and not be
