Since more and more people seem to be interested in it, here's a quick
status update:

hostapd works with
 - kernel 2.6.24-rc1
 - plus my patches from http://johannes.sipsolutions.net/patches/kernel/all/
 - plus the commit 5c58298c2536252ab95aa2b1497ab47eb878ca5d from net-2.6
   ([NETLINK]: Fix ACK processing after netlink_dump_start)
 - my hostapd patches from http://johannes.sipsolutions.net/patches/hostap/all/

I've done
 - WPA network with TKIP
 - manually assigning IPs
 - ping over the wireless interface
 - ssh over the wireless interface
without any problems.

Hardware is Broadcom chip with b43 driver as the AP and zd1211b chip
with zd1211rw driver (softmac-based) as a station.
