Executive summary: thanks for the links. I built the driver but master mode 
doesn't look supported still:
gandalfthegrey:/usr/src/zd1211# iwconfig ath1 mode master
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device ath1 ; Invalid argument.

Well, I did spend about 1H looking, but:
1) which web site?
Isn't http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/zd1211rw the canonical
If so, unless I read wrong it states nothing of the site you gave below.

2) I searched all archives I could find with "zd1211rw master mode"
on google and it brought me to this list, although I didn't find any
posts I should have found you are referring to.

Even http://lwn.net/Articles/186311/ points back to
http://zd1211.ath.cx/wiki/DriverRewrite which brings one here

Is there a way to seed google with the right answer and get it on

These combined built, thank you.
I didn't quite get it to do AP mode though:
