    When the rssi of the current AP drops, both wpa_supplicant and the
    firmware may do a background scan to find a better AP and try to
    associate. Since firmware based roaming is faster, inform
    wpa_supplicant to avoid roaming and let the firmware decide to
    roam if necessary.
    
    For fullmac drivers like ath6kl, it is just enough to provide the
    ESSID and the firmware will decide on the BSSID. Since it is not
    possible to do pre-auth during roaming for fullmac drivers, the
    wpa_supplicant needs to completely disconnect with the old AP and
    reconnect with the new AP. This consumes lot of time and it is
    better to leave the roaming decision to the firmware.
