There is no support for USB in Host AP driver. I do not have such card, so I'm not currently very interested in adding support for USB. In other words, this will wait unless someone is willing to make the needed changes (hopefully without breaking the driver structure completely ;-). linux-wlan-ng has support for USB devices, so there is example code available for driving Prism2-based USB adapters.
