This isn't as bad as it sounds, as most of the crap in the wlan-ng stack
is due to how it interacts with userspace, and most of that was set up
assuming that tertiary(ie firmware-based) AP mode was being used. The
so-called HostAP mode works fine on USB devices.
Wlan-ng's packet paths are pretty straightforard, and can easily be
ported to net80211. The real work comes from bolting up the mac80211
configuration interface, and from that perspective, you're writing a
whole new driver anyway.
