hostapd does not take configured antennas into account?

I have a 3x3 NIC, and used 'iw' to set the configured
antennas to 0x3 (2x2).

It seems hostapd ignores this and still advertises 3x3
support in the beacons.

I haven't messed much with hostapd code in particular...any hints
as to where is a good place in the code to fix this?
