But if you can plug a usb wifi stick which the kernel does support AP
mode you could then use the internal wifi as the uplink.

Be subversive, provide free wifi at airports!

Sadly no, as it's a hardmac chip and the proprietary firmware lacks this
feature. You should be able to use ad hoc mode for most purposes, albeit
not always as conveniently.
