hostapd(cvs) & madwifi(cvs)

Hi all
Im trying to get hostapd(cvs) to run with madwifi(cvs)
on one radio and also hostap-driver on another radio.
Im trying to get 802.1x EAP/TLS to work with madwifi.
I belive I am missing some fundamental IOCTL calls to
get this to work correctly. Im using 2.4.28 with
Wireless Extensions 16.
In order to get the missing IOCTL calls I belive I
need to get WE18 working.
I have tried to copy wireless.h(v18) and iw_handler.h
(v6) replacing those in the kernel. But have run into
some problems doing it this way.
The hostap driver file hostap.c(line 930) in
driver/modules refers to dev->wiresless_data from the
linux/netdevices.h file. If WE greater than 16. The
definiton of wireless_data I cant find anywhere in any
flavour of the linux kernel. :( not even in the 2.6.x
kernel tree or in a WE patch.
Please correct me if I have mis-understood the
interaction between hostap-driver/hostapd/madwifi and
Does anyone have a patch for WE18 on 2.4.28??
I do understand that WE17 & WE18 have not been
released yet.
Am i missing something?
