Ok, this is really not making sense from a design perspective. `ifconfig_<foo>` 
is being overloaded for starting up hostap’s (even though ifconfig itself 
doesn’t support hostap — only `wlanmode ap`). I don’t understand why it was 
done this way instead of just creating additional variables for 
`hostapd_<foo>`, similar to `ifconfig_<foo>` (other than maybe, it simplified 
things because `_ifconfig_getargs` could be used to grab the variables from 
`ifconfig_<foo>` — but it seems like a kludge to me).

I’d need to boot up FreeBSD on one of my PC laptops to confirm what the 
behavior is (the earliest I will likely be able to do this is later on today).

$ grep -r hostap sbin/ifconfig/
sbin/ifconfig/ifconfig.8:.Cm hostap ),
sbin/ifconfig/ifconfig.8:.Cm hostap
sbin/ifconfig/ifconfig.8:.Xr hostapd 8
