IFF_RUNNING and SIOCGMIIPHY support

I am trying to use Quagga and mii-tool in a mixed ethernet and wireless
Mii-tool does no appear to be supported by hostap, and I was wondering
why. Obviously the mode makes a difference, so saying that a node in
master mode is connected makes little sense, but for a managed or
ad-hoc mode node the link speed and the presence or absence of an
active connection would be useful.
Quagga seems to say that it needs IFF_RUNNING supported by an
interface, and I guess is doing the same thing looking to see if there
is an active connection. Looking in the source code I could not see
any occurences of this flag, but I suppose it might have a different
form which I missed.
Has anyone used hostap and Quagga's link detection facility?
Thanks in advance
