snmpd and unsupported ioctl's on hostap

Hi All,

I'm using Net-SNMP's snmpd to collect the interface counters.
Together with MRTG they do a lot of unsupported ioctl's on hostap
(mine is the PCI-version). I'm constantly debugging so my debug-log
was written all over by hostap with messages about unsupported ioctl's.

As a workaround I commented out the printk-line at the end of
hostap_ioctl.c but does anybody know why snmpd is doing all those
ioctl's? The figures are right so my MRTG-graphs are ok though.
