No, I was only interested in setting up hostapd. Vanilla hostapd did not work with any rtl8188eu driver I could find, so I resorted to hostapd-rtl871xdrv, which requires the kernel patch mentioned in my other comment. In turn, this works with the r8188eu driver which is in staging. So I will not be using this PKGBUILD myself, but will be happy to fix it in case it breaks for whatever reason. It should also be easily adapted to any fork of https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu that anyone likes to try.

did you try this one? https://github.com/kimocoder/rtl8188eus seems a newer version with monitor mode support

I created this, because the packages rtl8188eu-dkms-git and rtl8188eu-git do not work anymore.

I even got hostapd-rtl871xdrv to work using this driver, by building a patched kernel where I reverted some commits that where removing the legacy wireless ioctls, for the patch see https://pastebin.com/2nmLS4d6.
