I won't get to look at this until tomorrow, but I do remember having to 
make a few changes after the "panics on kldload" phase before it passed 
ccmp traffic in STA mode. I never tested hostap (or adhoc, or ahdemo, etc).

I feel like some of the callbacks weren't there and were issuing 
complaints, but I'm not sure I saw that in the recent edition.
Have you tested CCMP in STA mode? I can do that tomorrow as 
I said source was out of sync with world & kernel until yesterday.

If sta works for you then all bets are off, because I didn't test hostap.
