Hello Sergio! I'm also interested in adding NDIS 6.x support to hostap.
Sadly, I have no experience with this code base, so I'm not sure how useful
I will be when it comes to coding, but I'm willing to chip in however I
can. At the very least, I'll be able to test your implementation. Let me
know how I can help and if you get a public branch somewhere that I can
work on and test.
