So it's even worse than I thought: I was under the impression that you
could bridge, with a supported driver, regardless of WDS.

Anyhow, I worked around that: tap0 is now a permanent IF, kvm is forced
to use the existing tap instead of creating a new one and then all is
routed through wlan. Still need an otherwise unnecessary dnsmasq on the
local workstation but it works.

Thanks for the clarification, Benoit.
