I dare say you haven't followed Linux wireless development which is
crucial at this stage when especially AP support is still very
incomplete.

As I have repeatedly said, I am maintaining patchsets for both hostapd
and mac80211 to make them work together, see
http://johannes.sipsolutions.net/patches/{hostap,kernel}

Use some judgement to tell which patches you need ;)
