mac80211_hwsim: Remove forgotten files
These live in the Linux kernel tree with mac80211_hwsim.c that was already removed from hostap.git. The notes and example configuration files are in Documentation/networking/mac80211_hwsim directory, so remove the unnecessarily duplicated files from hostap.git.

-Introduction
-
-mac80211_hwsim is a Linux kernel module that can be used to simulate
-arbitrary number of IEEE 802.11 radios for mac80211 on a single
-device. It can be used to test most of the mac80211 functionality and
-user space tools (e.g., hostapd and wpa_supplicant) in a way that
-matches very closely with the normal case of using real WLAN
-hardware. From the mac80211 view point, mac80211_hwsim is yet another
-hardware driver, i.e., no changes to mac80211 are needed to use this
-testing tool.
-
-The main goal for mac80211_hwsim is to make it easier for developers
-to test their code and work with new features to mac80211, hostapd,
-and wpa_supplicant. The simulated radios do not have the limitations
-of real hardware, so it is easy to generate an arbitrary test setup
-and always reproduce the same setup for future tests. In addition,
-since all radio operation is simulated, any channel can be used in
-tests regardless of regulatory rules.
-
-mac80211_hwsim kernel module has a parameter 'radios' that can be used
-to select how many radios are simulates (default 2). This allows
-configuration of both very simply setups (e.g., just a single access
-point and a station) or large scale tests (multiple access points with
-hundreds of stations).
-
-mac80211_hwsim works by tracking the current channel of each virtual
-radio and copying all transmitted frames to all other radios that are
-currently enabled and on the same channel as the transmitting
-radio. Software encryption in mac80211 is used so that the frames are
-actually encrypted over the virtual air interface to allow more
-complete testing of encryption.
-
-A global monitoring netdev, hwsim#, is created independent of
-mac80211. This interface can be used to monitor all transmitted frames
-regardless of channel.
-
-
-Simple example
-
-This example shows how to use mac80211_hwsim to simulate two radios:
-one to act as an access point and the other as a station that
-associates with the AP. hostapd and wpa_supplicant are used to take
-care of WPA2-PSK authentication. In addition, hostapd is also
-processing access point side of association.
-
-# Load the module (needs to be built into your kernel)
-modprobe mac80211_hwsim
-
-# Run hostapd (AP) for wlan0
-hostapd hostapd.conf
-
-# Run wpa_supplicant (station) for wlan1
-wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan1 -c wpa_supplicant.conf
