This has been covered on the mailinglist a few days ago.
It's in the readme,*checkout*/hostap/README?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/plain
search for hide

Following parameters are currently supported. These can be set using
'iwpriv wlan# <param_name> <value>' or 'prism2_param wlan#
<param_name> <value>'. Most values can be read with 'iwpriv wlan#
get<param_name>' or 'prism2_param wlan# <param_name>'.

enh_sec: "enhanced security" bitfield
	0 = options disabled (default)
	1 = hide SSID in beacon frames
	2 = ignore clients configured with "ANY" (broadcast) SSID
	(3 = both options)
	Note! This requires STA f/w ver 1.6.3 or newer
