Thanks. I don't think libnl 2.0 has been released and the snapshot
versions after 1.1 are known to have changed the API in incompatible
ways, so I do not have much interest in tracking this before a real
release is available. I'm not aware of any need for the 2.0 snapshots at
this point, i.e., 1.1 release should cover all needs for wpa_supplicant
and hostapd.

All changes to wpa_supplicant/hostapd need to go through hostap.git
repository first and then be merged into hostap-06.git should they be
considered important for the stable branch. I did not yet look at
whether this would apply to hostap.git as-is, but can do so at some
point if needed.
