I know at some point I was able to do e.g.:
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0 wlanmode hostap bssid
ifconfig wlan1 create wlandev ath0 wlanmode hostap bssid
and end up with different MAC addresses on wlan0 and wlan1. Recently (and possibly for some time) that has not been the case. All wlan interfaces end up with the MAC address of the parent device, which (obviously) causes problems if actually using more than one vap. Using "wlanaddr" and a manual address instead works as expected.
