I'd be intrested in knowing whether the wpa_supplicant supports (or
what are design considerations to make it support) issuing
pre-authentication requests to mutiple BSSIDs in parallel, and without
dependencies between success/fail of a particular negotiation. In
other words - having multiple instances of pre-authentication
state-machines. Knowledge of pre-authentication capability of the
BSSID (AP) may be gathered by some sort of 802.11k Network Management,
not only relying on the RSN IE.
