For mac80211_hwsim interfaces, suggest to use wpa_supplicant with the more
modern, netlink based driver instead of wext.

Actually, I wasn't even able to make a connection with the configuration
files and information provided in
Documentation/networking/mac80211_hwsim/{README,hostapd.conf/wpa_supplicant.conf}

Changing -Dwext to -Dnl80211 helped and made the WPA-PSK connection with
mac80211_hwsim interfaces work for me.
