That surprises me a bit, since the stock Fon firmware for the Fonera uses
two APs on a single radio.  They're both in master mode, though.

I've tried it on Broadcom (OpenWRT) with 2.6.25, and it didn't work.  I'll
be building .27 versions of OpenWRT for Broadcom and Atheros as soon as
it's included in OpenWRT, I'll let you know how it goes.

(.26 has serious bugs in ad-hoc mode, which is why I'm waiting for .27)
