Traffic Control

Pretty basic question to start with...

When using hostap as an Access Point, will client to client IP
packets on the same subnet (and interface) go through the layers
that allow Linux tc to regulate bandwidth usage?

I assume some layer 2 stuff definitely won't hit this code, if
only the administrative traffic. Is there a packet by packet
description of what is happening anywhere, or must I master the
source code?
