I was able to run hostapd with FST in this scenario, just had to have one config
file per interface and start the hostapd instance with both of them as parameters:

    hostapd phy0.conf phy1.conf

Now on to the next issue. Currently hostapd does not seem to add the MB IE to
any secondary BSSes that are configured on a given interface. Does it make sense
to be able to define an FST group per BSS instead of per interface?
