set_ap_wps_ie in driver_nl80211

What I ment is: if driver handles probe requests and probe responses internally (wihout notifying) hostapd.

How to pass this IE for Probe Resp then?

Isn't this function comment from set_ap_wps_ie() valid anymore?

Yes. My old comment applies to that:

That doesn't make any sense, the whole beacon is programmed and probe responses are sent by hostapd.
