Well, I noticed that hostapd git had been updated, so I grabbed a snapshot of 
7b90c16aa9ca377b1a6d160c1ba0f2bd304f7e2f, built it, and it seems to work with 
Debian's stock 2.6.30 in Squeeze/testing.  I will report a Debian bug 
encouraging upgrading to that git version.

If you are curious about the problem and would like me to test any other 
scenarios, let me know, though I would prefer to limit kernels to Debian stock.

Thanks for you help.
