That's somewhat unfortunate from the view point of automated testing
setup that I'm currently using. I guess I should finally add Android
builds to the automated compilation check, but even with that, actual
functionality of the binder interface would not be covered at all with
the hwsim test cases.

Hmm.. Should this happen automatically when running mm or the command
you mentioned below?

This is failing for me due to missing header files like this:

In file included from
                 from external/hostap/wpa_supplicant/binder/binder.cpp:14:
external/hostap/wpa_supplicant/binder/supplicant.h:13:47: fatal error: fi/w1/wpa_supplicant/BnSupplicant.h: No such file or directory
 #include "fi/w1/wpa_supplicant/BnSupplicant.h"

This is on top of Android M release from AOSP. external/hostap is the
hostap.git android-m branch rebased on top of the current master branch
and these two patches.
