> i start integrate hostap to our project
Really? Don't confuse "hostap" and "hostapd".
"hostap" is an old driver for WLAN cards using Prism-chipsets.
"hostapd" is a user-space tool that allows a Linux box to act as
an Access-Point, with a bunch of different WLAN cards, not only
ones supported by the above mentioned "hostap" driver.

Which WLAN card do you use?
driver_wext.c can only be used by wpa_supplicant, e.g. to be a
station. It isn't used directly in hostapd-mode. However, a
bunch of other driver-files build on and extend driver_wext.c,
do a "grep driver_wext.h src/drivers/*.c" to see which ones.
Some of them allow AP mode, e.g. driver_madwifi, driver_hostap
However, if you do a new product, crap this. Use linux-2.6.31, a
mac80211 based card, iw and hostapd with nl80211 instead. That
makes your product future proof. Right now you're investing in
outdated, obsolete technic.

What treatment do you mean? AFAIK EV_REGISTERED is

Yeah, if you pay me 50000 EUR :-) That is too broad a question.
