80211w support in HEAD? build error: "../src/ap/drv_callbacks.c:368:16: error: ‘struct hostapd_bss_config’ has no member named ‘ieee80211w’; did you mean ‘ieee802_1x’?"

I'm building hostapd from src,

	git log | head
		commit 133439b89ac7239f81d83220feaa0da023b306ff

on linux64.

If I config build with

	cat .config

built fails at

	make V=1

otoh, with


no issues with build.



	"The 802.11w standard is implemented in Linux and BSD's as part of the 80211mac driver code base, which is used by several wireless driver interfaces; i.e., ath9k. The feature is easily enabled in most recent kernels and Linux OS's using these combinations."

checking, 'mac80211' *is* enabled

	lsmod | grep 80211
		mac80211              835584  1 ath9k_htc
		cfg80211              651264  4 ath9k_htc,mac80211,ath,ath9k_common
		rfkill                 28672  5 cfg80211

a bug? or some missing install/config?
