   Frantisek, FWIW, I had hostapd 0.6.9 compiled and worked fine
with git clone of libnl as of last Friday. I tested it with
linux 2.6.33-rc8 for some of the basic functionality and
it seemed fine to me. I used AR9280 wireless cards. There is
obviously lots of fixes for 0.6.10 but it might help you get
started somewhere.

   Hope this helps.
