So I removed those call-through place because private wext operations
are a really bad idea and should just die. We don't want drivers to
require specially patched hostapd versions to work right, like here.

I suppose in staging you might want to work around that like here, but
that really means you see no future in mainline for this code, or
otherwise you should fix it the proper way.
