Once you have the two systems talking to each other (for which adhoc would
likely be fine if AP mode doesnt work ), the software issue becomes
actually quite trivial (or I'm missing something).
You need NAT in the kernel to act as a gateway and possible dnsmasq (or
similar) to do DHCP, both of which are very well understood (especially after
years of hacking WRT54 and it's brethren) and available for OpenEmbedded.
 Not sure what Win does with DHCP in adhoc mode though. As last resort, you
could do without DHCP sacrificing mostly just some comfort.
