Thank you both Jouni and Kalle for your answers.
I guess I have two choices: 1) either abandon the idea of 11w (provided
neither compat-wireless nor the TI-supplied WiLink driver support that
standard, not to mention the actual TI hardware chip) and don't waste my
time any further with this; or 2) upgrade my smartphone and endure the
pain associated with such exercise (I have a lot of custom-made software
on that phone)...
