You're not going to have much luck with this right now when using
dadwifi/mac80211 on Linux. It may be possible to do with the hostap
driver, but I haven't checked that.
Right now, there's nothing I can offer to make this work. If you really
want to dig in and fix this you can start at my patch series for hostapd
 but Michael Wu tells me that it doesn't make wpa_supplicant work and
I haven't tried so far. The plan obviously is to make it work, but for
me personally hostapd is higher priority since we have the in-kernel
MLME that works.
