I applied this to hostapd now even though question about how to detect
new devices is still somewhat open. This is a good starting point and
allows people to start experimenting with the code. I verified that this
works in my test setup and added an example configuration, wired.conf,
that is quite minimal example of how to setup wired authenticator.

I moved this to sta_info.c as ap_sta_add().
