If you can do this by going through the network stack, this would sound
like normal traffic shaping that would be completely outside the scope
of hostapd (and WLAN in general for that matter). If you are trying to
do this for bridging between wireless STA and not going through any kind
of IP routing, this get more complex and that may need some additional
kernel side design. In any case, that would also be mostly outside the
scope of hostapd.
