If you set kismet to leave the master interface alone (ignoreprimary=true), set it to not channel hop the interface (hop=false) and set it to scan via wpa_supplicant, it MIGHT work.

I've found that since adding the wpa_supplicant feature, a lot of drivers get unhappy making a monitor vap along a managed, even thought it SHOULD work and used to.

I think it will be very driver dependent, you'll definitely want the ignoreprimary=true with 2013 kismet, because it shuts down the base interface to prevent it from interfering with channel operation.
