Well, I've been using the official HP driver. I ran the utility like so:
ndiscvt -i name_of_nt_driver.inf -s name_of_nt_driver.sys -o 

I then copied it to the compile directory of my kernel. Make depend runs 
correctly, but it crashes out during the linking phase of make. I have 
these options at the bottom of my kernel config:

options NDISAPI
device ndis
device wlan

As I said, this worked perfectly with 5.3 and even 5-current before the 
5.3 release. I tried building the stable version of ndiscvt, and that 
didn't produce a different header file. I did a cvsup two days ago, got 
the error, and did a new cvsup tonight.
