I'm running these patches since a few weeks now. I didn't had the
problem you tried to fix (because I never used the legacy driver), but I
had another one, which seems to be fixed with this patchset, too:
Before this set, the device often wasn't usable at all after loading the
modules and starting of hostapd. No beacon could be seen, although the
log files didn't show any problem.
With your patchset applied, I face this problem really seldom now, about
once a week (instead of 3 or 4 times a day).
