This bug isn't actually a FTBFS, since hostap-source isn't needed in
recent kernels. The driver was merged in mainline 2.6.14 and the package
exists to serve users of older kernels.

It definitely should be kept out of testing (CCing release team) and it
should be noted (in the package description and in the build log) that
users don't have to build the modules anymore.

Release team, could you add a hint so we don't have to keep this bug
open to keep the package out of testing?
