Just as a followup, I've successfully compiled the hostap apps for my arch 
which is an arm kernel:
EXTRAVERSION = -rmk7-pxa3-embedix

Am I correct in that I will have to patch the kernel? I did attempt a make in 
the hostap module source dir with KERNEL_PATH pointed to my source tree and 
CC pointed at my cross-compiler.
