Interesting. Can you go deeper into that so that we can be more
confident of this limitation?

ieee80211_open() is the starting point.
ieee80211_check_concurrent_iface() is one candidate to generate -EBUSY
but from inspection, I don't think that's happening in this case,
perhaps you can keep following through in order to figure out which
part of the code is not allowing the 2nd STA interface to come up.
