And a bit more.. CVS version of the Host AP driver has alternative version of WE private ioctls that take MAC address as an argument (wds_add, wds_del, addmac, delmac, and kickmac). New version uses IW_PRIV_TYPE_ADDR that was added in WIRELESS_EXT 15 and requires wireless tools version >= 25, i.e., MAC addr parsing is done in user space, not in kernel driver. New version is Host AP driver is included for WIRELESS_EXT >= 15 or if PRISM2_USE_WE_TYPE_ADDR is defined.
