Ad-Hoc scanning measurements

I want to do some measurements concerning active scanning time in ad-hoc
mode of 802.11b cards and I am currently browsing the hostap-driver
source code to find suitable places for timestamp logging (i.e. places
where active scanning get's finally issued and a where it is finally
finished). But as I am not that experienced with C and the source is
documented quite rarely I am not sure where to exactly place such
Further I'd like to change how ad-hoc nodes handle probe-requests for
testing alternative handoff procedures.. is there a chance to control
management frame handling if the card is not in AP mode? If it is, could
I use 'hostapd' for this or is it necessary to hack the hostap-driver code?.
Thanks in advance for some hints and if you need more detailed
information, please let me know it.
