For people who try to use the LIBNL >= 2.0, it would be very nice to apply
this patch in to the hostapd/defconfig file:

# git diff defconfig
diff --git a/hostapd/defconfig b/hostapd/defconfig
index 2591e71..0b75f78 100644
--- a/hostapd/defconfig
+++ b/hostapd/defconfig
@@ -30,6 +30,8 @@ CONFIG_DRIVER_HOSTAP=y
 #LIBNL=/usr/src/libnl
 #CFLAGS += -I$(LIBNL)/include
 #LIBS += -L$(LIBNL)/lib
+# If you have libnl version >= 2.0 then also enable the following:
+#CONFIG_LIBNL20=y

 # Driver interface for FreeBSD net80211 layer (e.g., Atheros driver)
 #CONFIG_DRIVER_BSD=y
