Evaluate use of 'iwconfig athX mode Y' to change a VAP's mode of operation

Maybe it would be possible to make use of iwconfig athX mode [ad-hoc|managed|master|repeater|monitor] to change the mode of operation of a VAP interface. By now it is necessary to destroy and recreate an interface for changing the mode.

  • patch_attached changed.
  • milestone changed from version 2.0.0 - far away to version 1.0.0 - first stable release.

That functionality should not be pushed that far away. Compatibility to the usual wireless tools usage is important enough, I think.
