If you are running hostapd as an authentication server, driver=none
would be even cleaner option, but anyway, this does not affect the
actual RADIUS server functionality.

"./hlr_auc_gw -h" will keep you more information its command line
parameters. For EAP-AKA, the Milenage keys should be defined in a
separate file and -m option is used to point to that. See
hlr_auc_gw.milenage_db for an example of that file.

That has nothing to do with hlr_auc_gw. The connection between hostapd
and hlr_auc_gw is through a separate UNIX domain socket which is
configured with eap_sim_db option in hostapd.conf (see the example file
for more details).
