Does stock run(4) support hostap mode yet?

rspro# sysctl net.wlan.debug=1
net.wlan.debug: 0 -> 1
rspro# ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev run0 wlanmode hostap ssid bsd mode 11g
wlan0: Ethernet address: 00:22:cf:03:e0:30

The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed from
available data. Our authority is Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of
the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall
be sevenfold, as the light of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the
Moon as much radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition seven
times seven (49) times as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or fifty
times in all. The light we receive from the Moon is one ten-thousandth
of the light we receive from the Sun, so we can ignore that. With these
data we can compute the temperature of Heaven. The radiation falling on
Heaven will heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is
just equal to the heat received by radiation, i.e., Heaven loses fifty
times as much heat as the Earth by radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann
law for radiation, (H/E)^4 = 50, where E is the absolute temperature of
the earth (~300K), gives H as 798K (525C). The exact temperature of Hell
cannot be computed, but it must be less than 444.6C, the temperature at
which brimstone or sulphur changes from a liquid to a gas. Revelations
21:8 says "But the fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in
the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." A lake of molten
brimstone means that its temperature must be at or below the boiling
point, or 444.6C (Above this point it would be a vapor, not a lake.) We
have, then, that Heaven, at 525C is hotter than Hell at 445C. --
