wpa_sup & hostap kernel driver

(Picking up an old thread now I'm back at Uni:

Basically, I have been building from source and using wpa_supplicant fine
for more than a year, then I started using a kernel with hostap compiled in
<http://people.redhat.com/linville/kernels/fedora-netdev/>, and it stopped

I've noticed something a little odd...

- In the kernel tree I built hostap from source I have in
/lib/modules/2.6.12-1.1398_FC4/kernel/drivers/net/wireless the files:
hostap_crypt_ccmp.ko  hostap_crypt_wep.ko  hostap.ko      hostap_plx.ko
hostap_crypt_tkip.ko  hostap_cs.ko         hostap_pci.ko

- In the kernel tree for 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4.netdev.8 (hostap built in) I have
only the files:
hostap_cs.ko  hostap.ko  hostap_pci.ko  hostap_plx.ko

Which leads me to wonder if not _all_ the hostap driver is in this
"Fedora-netdev kernel" and it's missing the bits I need to do
authentication-encryption?  Is this same for all kernel with hostap compiled in?
