wpa_supplicant was built without control interface support (no
CONFIG_CTRL_IFACE=y line in .config), but the configuration file is
trying to use this. Either add this option into .config and rebuild
wpa_supplicant or remove these two lines from the configuration file if
you do not want to include control interface support.
