What is the status of 802.11n support with the mac80211 driver?

In packetsource_wext.c on line 689 I see:

if ((err = mac80211_setchannel_cache(interface.c_str(), globalreg->nlhandle,
nlfamily, in_ch, 0, errstr)) >= 0) {

The 0 is the mode to use, so it looks like it never checks HT20/HT40+/HT40-
Is there a way to add these to the hopping sequence?

I'm also wondering if 40mhz mode will detect 20mhz 802.11b/g/n devices, or if all four modes (including NL80211_CHAN_NO_HT) are actually required.
