What happens when wpa_supplicant is forced(scan results are modified, so 
wpa_supplicant believfes that AP has pre-authentication) to 
pre-authenticate with an AP which does not have pre-authentication enable?

I guess on wpa_supplicant side it times-out, but on the AP what it do 
with those pre-authentication(EAP) packets? just drop outs or send some 
replies back to wpa_supplicant??
any clue?
