If you can build it and then use driver=devicescape in runtime
configuration, you should be good to go as far as hostapd is concerned.

I've never tested Ralink driver in AP mode and don't even know whether
it is supposed to work.. Have you heard of someone using this
successfully? This would be more or a question to the driver maintainers
at this point unless it is clear that the driver is expected to work as
an AP.
