Yes.  hostap_hw.c was still including linux/wireless.h regardless of
CONFIG_NET_RADIO.  Making this consistent with other files fixed
unresolved symbols.

When I loaded the driver, there kernel log was flooded with messages

wlan0: hostap_rx_frame_mgmt: management frame received in non-Host AP mode

For some reason, the iw_mode parameter was ignored without wireless
extensions support.  I removed that ifdef.  The patch is attached.

There are also messages about unused functions, but I won't fix that code
without having a testsuite with several kernels and configurations:

hostap_ap.c:2701: warning: `prism2_hostapd' defined but not used
hostap_ap.c:3244: warning: `ap_crypt_get_ptrs' defined but not used
hostap_ap.c:448: warning: `ap_control_add_mac' defined but not used
hostap_ap.c:468: warning: `ap_control_del_mac' defined but not used
hostap_ap.c:542: warning: `ap_control_kick_mac' defined but not used

(default hostap configuration, linux 2.4.21-rc7-ac1 with disabled WE 15)
