What's the expected way of using these new netdevs? In other words, is
there an expectation of some external program listening for new netdevs
to be added and then add them to a suitable bridge interface (etc.)? Or
is hostapd expected to make this fully usable? In either case, the
documentation in hostapd.conf could mention some more details on how
this should be used.

This was the last email in this thread that I had left in my queue, so
at this point, I don't have any more comments on this version of the
patch set.
