I haven't tried mwl yet, but you should just be able to configure the
interface as an 802.11n one:
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev mwl0 wlanmode hostap
ifconfig wlan0 channel 6:ht/40
ifconfig wlan0 up
.. then start hostapd. Hostapd doesn't require any 802.11n "stuff" to
be configured - just make sure you only enable CCMP encryption.
802.11n doesn't work with TKIP.
Please make sure you update to FreeBSD-8 STABLE as the -RELEASE code
has significant issues with 802.11n.
