HostAP for USB?

We have put USB support into the HostAP code based on USB code from absolute
value. Our clients plan to release a project that they are working on that
uses this code into sourceforge around the Christmas time frame.  They will
make an announcement on their website when this is done
(  At this time we will be free to release a
tarball of our development tree to Jouni (for integration into the HostAP
baseline if he is so inclined :) and to anyone else who wants it.  I'll post
another message to the list when the code is available.

I have heard about at least two projects that have attempted to make
this work. However, I have not seen any code or heard of these at least
during last month or so. I do not have any Prism2 USB devices, so this
has not been that important for me. If someone would like to get me more
interested on the subject, be prepared to donate such device and I'll
check what I can do about getting that port running.. ;-)
