This will not work with wireless cards on OpenBSD. Only Prism cards operating
in hostap mode can bridge, and Prism cards in hostap mode cannot talk to each
other, only to BSS clients.
Ergo you are forced to route at one end of the wireless link (the end that is
operating as BSS client) so bridging at the other end is pointless.
Bottom line, if you are going to do this using wireless cards and OpenBSD you
have no choice but to route.
