* On my embedded target, I am running rt73 based usb wireless adapter.
* tested hostapd and wpa_supplicant individually and it is working fine.
* bothe hostapd and wpa_supplicant are latest 0.7.3 versions with
libnl_1.1 version & kernel 2.6.35

If I run both wpa_supplicant and hostapd I am having issue.

Reason for running hostapd and wpa_supplicant on same terminal is we
have multiple wireless terminals and if one of them can't access the
AP (due to coverage issue) , then it will bind to Hostapd on some
other terminal. I am not sure, if I can able to configure my terminals
to use both hostapd & wpa_supplicant and need your expert advice.
