I supposed I need to withdrawn my "Ached-by:" - I was using it in the minimal 
sense of "I have seen the patch and aware of its existence".

Is the beacon code driver-specific, or is it back to my older question, some 
part of mac80211 need to have some generic support for it? or both? My 
impression is that master mode for mac80211-based drivers - if it is ever going 
to happen - requires some substantial changes to both mac80211 and hostapd and 
is not happening any time soon.

OTOH, I have the impression that the windows driver claims to support Ad-Hoc 
mode but I could be wrong - it has been a long time since I looked at the 
options and choices under windows.
