You may get an answer here, but you're posting to the wrong list.  I'd suggest asking on the linux wireless list, and maybe the ath9k-devel list.

Dear All,

Iam a bit confused,
Is 802.11r  (fast BSS transition) a driver capability or a capability of the hostapd ??

if it is a driver capability, Does ath9k and ath5k support 802.11r??
how do i verify this?? 

google search shows me that mac80211 supports 802.11r so can i assume that ath5k and ath9k have this feature and that it is a driver feature??
then what is the roll of hostapd in 802.11r, is it the same roll as in 802.1x?? 
hostapd mentions 802.11r capability so iam confused, 

please help!!
