As another possible reference. OpenWRT trunk has new support for the
Atheros AP81. Although we do not have the source code for the madwifi
code ( ath_ahb ) and it is provided by Atheros only as a kernel 2.6.15
binary driver. The good news is that ath9k has been ported ot the
ar9102/ar9103 chips that the AP81 typically uses.
In particular the Trendnet TEW-652BRP, Trendnet TEW-632BRP, D-Link
DIR-615 rev C1, and Planex MZK-W04NU are currently fully flashable
with OpenWRT. I think the Atheros reference AP81 hardware should be
pretty easy, as you won't have to reverse-engineer the flash like
OpenWRT developers did ;)
I also encourage you to look at the subversion checkin logs for
specifics on buttons and the models I mentioned. I don't have any
specific knowledge on how OpenWRT buttons tie to hostapd / WPS. I
haven't tried that yet given the lack of maturity of the current ath9k
