Sorry, I didn't know you are reading this list :-)
I mean, wlanctl-ng is 74k when linked dynamically against uClibc.
iwconfig and iwpriv together are 44k. Not really much, but in my
configuration, every kilobyte counts. Besides, I think it will be easier
to compile HostAP into the kernel, thus eliminating insmod from busybox.
I simply prefer to have choice as long as I can. linux-wlan-ng works with
firmware AP, HostAP doesn't. If I fix HostAP today, I'll have a choice
tomorrow. It can be handy if I try to squeeze e.g. sshd into the last
kilobytes of the flash.
