    nl80211: Add IEEE 802.1X PAE control for station mode · 3f77316c

    Add a new NL80211_ATTR_CONTROL_PORT flag for NL80211_CMD_ASSOCIATE to
    allow user space to indicate that it will control the IEEE 802.1X port
    in station mode. Previously, mac80211 was always marking the port
    authorized in station mode. This was enough when drop_unencrypted flag
    was set. However, drop_unencrypted can currently be controlled only
    with WEXT and the current nl80211 design does not allow fully secure
    configuration. Fix this by providing a mechanism for user space to
    control the IEEE 802.1X port in station mode (i.e., do the same that
    we are already doing in AP mode).
