So, you are using madwifi driver..

But why are you trying to use Hermer driver interface?? Please let me
know what led to this conclusion so that I can improve documentation to
make this more clear. Hermer driver interface is used only if you are
using Hermer driver, which you are not.. If you are using madwifi
driver, you should use madwifi driver interface.

Did you read the README file in wpa_supplicant package?
