It looks like there is an open comment on patch 1/6 and patch 5/6 seems
to depend on kernel changes that have not yet been accepted. Am I
correct in assuming that a new version of this patch set will be
submitted once the kernel changes are in? Or are there some patches here
that could already be merged into hostap.git? In any case, I'm dropping
this v4 from my queue now, but I'm open to considering updated patchset
either before or after the kernel changes get in depending on what would
seem to be most efficient way of reducing the amount of pending changes
for this functionality.
