Please be a bit careful with statements like this since HostAP can be
interpreted bit differently..

Host AP is a Linux driver for Prism2/2.5/3 cards. It does _not_ work
with Atheros cards. hostapd is a user space component that works with
both Host AP driver and madwifi (Atheros cards). Using "HostAP" to refer
to hostapd is confusing at best.
