    cfg80211: rework key operation · fffd0934
    Johannes Berg authored
    This reworks the key operation in cfg80211, and now only
    allows, from userspace, configuring keys (via nl80211)
    after the connection has been established (in managed
    mode), the IBSS been joined (in IBSS mode), at any time
    (in AP[_VLAN] modes) or never for all the other modes.
    In order to do shared key authentication correctly, it
    is now possible to give a WEP key to the AUTH command.
    To configure static WEP keys, these are given to the
    CONNECT or IBSS_JOIN command directly, for a userspace
    SME it is assumed it will configure it properly after
    the connection has been established.
    Since mac80211 used to check the default key in IBSS
    mode to see whether or not the network is protected,
    it needs an update in that area, as well as an update
    to make use of the WEP key passed to auth() for shared
    key authentication.
