      Description

      >Description of problem:

      The last version of OpenVZ that worked with hostapd for running wireless access points is Linux rh-vz01.webisp.uk 2.6.32-042stab111.12

      Since then when starting hostapd I get this error:

      Starting hostapd: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.confConfiguration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
      nl80211: Could not add multicast membership for scan events: -2 (No such file or directory)
      Failed to initialize driver 'nl80211'

      >How reproducible:

      service start hostapd

      >Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Upgrade to kernel beyond version 2.6.32-042stab111.12
      2. service start hostapd
      3.

      >Actual results:
      Starting hostapd: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.confConfiguration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
      nl80211: Could not add multicast membership for scan events: -2 (No such file or directory)
      Failed to initialize driver 'nl80211'


      >Expected results:

      Service starts OK

      >Host OS:

      CentOS 6.7 x86_64

      >Guest OS:

      N/A this is running on hardware node.

      >Additional info (see https://openvz.org/Reporting_OpenVZ_problem):

      Seems to be related to an upstream bug
