I don't think that this is quite correct. IIUC / IIRC, modern mac80211
wireless drivers use the userspace hostapd program (not to be confused

foffl.sourceforge.net - Feeds OFFLine, an offline RSS/Atom aggregator
mailmin.sourceforge.net - remote access via secure (OpenPGP) email
ssuds.sourceforge.net - A Simple Sudoku Solver and Generator
