hostapd and WEP

I'm trying to set up a AP with static WEP keys. I use wpa_supplicant
to test it. wpa_supplicant doesn't choose my AP because privacy
field is set to 0.
802.11 specifications say:
"APs set the Privacy subﬁeld to 1 within transmitted Beacon, Probe
Response, Association Response, and
Reassociation Response management frames if WEP encryption is required
for all data type frames
exchanged within the BSS. If WEP encryption is not required, the Privacy
subﬁeld is set to 0."
With hostapd, this field is only set to 1 when parameter
"wep_key_len_broadcast" is set. In my case,
I don't want to use 802.1X, only static WEP keys.
Attached is a patch which tries to solve this. What's your opinion ?
