Hello,
if I am right (http://www.kr.xemacs.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/mcgrof/presentations/linux-wireless-status.pdf), you could have chance with nl80211driver (old name devicesacpe). I am fighting with it also.

In hostapd config...
# Driver interface for drivers using the nl80211 kernel interface
CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211=y
# driver_nl80211.c requires a rather new libnl, probably not
# shipped with your distribution yet
#LIBNL=/usr/src/libnl
#CFLAGS += -I$(LIBNL)/include
#LIBS += -L$(LIBNL)/lib
CFLAGS += -I/usr/include/netlink/
LIBS += -L/usr/lib/
