Can hostap&madwifi support several bcast keys of one AP?

I want to do as Jouni's letter for this subject
(several bcast keys of one AP)
And found 2 questions in my deployment.

My env is: linux fc7(update kernel to 2.6.26), hostap
0.6.4, compat-wireless-old-2008-10-06.tar.bz2
libnl-1.0-pre8.tar.tar; ath5k chipset.

1. when make wireless souce tree, there are several
WARNINGs:
  Building modules, stage 2.

And ath5k.ko can not be insmod properly:
[root at telnetserver ath5k]# insmod ath5k.ko
insmod: error inserting 'ath5k.ko': -1 Unknown symbol
in module
the "dmesg" shows:
ath5k: Unknown symbol ieee80211_hdrlen

So what can i do for this problem.

2. When I insmod the ath5k.ko from the linux kernel 
2.6.26, the wlan0 can work well as station.
But the hostapd can not work:

# ./hostapd -dd /hostapd.conf
Configuration file: ./hostapd.conf
ctrl_interface_group=0
nl80211 not found.
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
wlan0: Unable to setup interface.
Flushing old station entries
Deauthenticate all stations
rmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory
Could not remove VLAN iface: vlan1: Illegal seek
Could not remove VLAN iface: vlan2: Illegal seek
Could not remove VLAN iface: vlan3: Illegal seek
Could not remove VLAN iface: guest: Illegal seek

Though i haven't patch the ath5k's driver from linux
kernel 2.6.26 for AP mode, hostapd can not run as AP
mode indeed. 
But i think this problem happened when nl80211 was 
initialized (function i802_init) and AP mode will be
set later, not at this time.

libnl was installed at default path:
/usr/local/include/netlink
/usr/local/lib

There are some troubles on my deployment "hostap + 
nl80211 + ath5k".Thanks for ur kindly response.




Otherwise, in order to realize this function(several
bcast keys of one AP), would u mind show me the right
souces' version(hostapd, kernel, libnl.....) 
and wireless nic haredware and its driver, which have
been tested and can work well.
I think i can re-deploy the same wireless environment
for it:)
thanks.

Best regards,
WangYue
