State of the OpenMoko wlan driver

we are planning to use openmokos for meshnet experiments (OLSR for example) 
and I have a few questions about the capabilities of the OpenMoko wlan 

a) I heared the driver supports adhoc interfaces, is this correct ?

b) If yes, does the driver support promiscuous mode (can I hear adhoc packets 
send between two other devices in range) ?

c) Does the driver support monitor mode with radiotap header or is there 
another way to get the signal strength of other wlan adhoc stations in 
range ?
