I haven't tried this myself, but I think that it will work: set each
AP's SSID to the same string.  Run hostapd on each AP.  Hostapd ought to
handle the 802.11 Reassociate messages from your clients and send the
right 802.? frames to make the switch(es) in your network update their
forwarding tables.
