Debug output from hostapd...

I've been able to get the hostapd (a recent version from git 0..6.6)
and a very recent rt2x00 driver to run together on my target here. I
have not been able to see the Access Point that should be advertised
by the s/w. I have here the output from the hostapd debug (-dd)
option. I'm wondering if someone can spot why I have no access point
or am I in fact just not advertising it (the SSID).

Cheers!!
