Just as another data-point, I'm using ath9k for an AR9300 Rev:3 chipset
with compat-wireless-v3.4-rc3-1, and it doesn't work as an AP in any case:

Stock code:
Reverting [PATCH] mac80211: use common radiotap code for cooked monitors:
Leaving the above in place and applying Felix's radiotap patch:

I get a lot of these logs from hostapd:

1335397090.413064: Could not parse ProbeReq from 00:24:44:f5:e3:c2

I'm using hostapd 0.7.3.  If I rewind to an earlier "stable", it works -
at least the AP works; there is a bug in client mode when connecting to
a WEP AP, which is fixed in v3.4-rc3-1.

Should I try switching from "stable" to "next"?
