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
[1] 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.
