few if any phones run a posix environment. The only ones I can think of is android, (as far as I know the drivers don't expose a monitor interface, and the apps run in java anyhow, so we don't get to talk to the drivers directly) and the freerunner, which uses the a6k chipset which uses a binary-only driver with no rfmon and doesn't work w/ the existing atheros drivers).

So unfortunately, no.
