That is caused by conflicting of linux/if.h included by test code and net/if.h included by iwlib.h.
I've handled it with such patch

The above mentioned patch worked fine for me in r15557.
Please review it and add it to the repository.

I added the patch as an attachment for easier handling.
Just place it in package/wireless-tools/patches.
