This is not correct; this timeout is for the IEEE 802.11 authentication
and association (not IEEE 802.1X/WPA) just like commented in the source
code.. The timeout is cancelled in association event handler, so it
sounds like your driver or VxWorks port is not delivering an association
event in this case.
