Looks like your drone isn't actually capturing any data. I'd investigate there - make sure your interfaces are coming up right, test tcpdump on the wlan0mon interface on openwrt.

I run a kismet drone (2010 version direct from ipkg repo) on an ath9k openwrt install for testing and it works fine, targetting against the latest SVN kismet. There have been some fixes and improvements to drones in SVN but nothing that should keep it from working.
