Remove unmaintained driver wrappers
The driver wrappers broadcom, iphone, osx, and ralink have not been maintained for a while and it does not look like they will be in the future either. As such, remove them from the development branch. The previous versions will be included in older releases up to 1.x. Signed-hostap: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi>

Linux ndiswrapper (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/) with
Windows NDIS driver.
- Broadcom wl.o driver (old version only)
- This is a generic Linux driver for Broadcom IEEE 802.11a/g cards.
- However, it is proprietary driver that is not publicly available
- except for couple of exceptions, mainly Broadcom-based APs/wireless
- routers that use Linux. The driver binary can be downloaded, e.g.,
- from Linksys support site (http://www.linksys.com/support/gpl.asp)
- for Linksys WRT54G. The GPL tarball includes cross-compiler and
- the needed header file, wlioctl.h, for compiling wpa_supplicant.
- This driver support in wpa_supplicant is expected to work also with
- other devices based on Broadcom driver (assuming the driver includes
- client mode support). Please note that the newer Broadcom driver
- ("hybrid Linux driver") supports Linux wireless extensions and does
- not need (or even work) with the specific driver wrapper. Use -Dwext
- with that driver.
-
In theory, any driver that supports Linux wireless extensions can be
used with IEEE 802.1X (i.e., not WPA) when using ap_scan=0 option in
configuration file.
