The last patch I've got is a patch adding blob support to the D-Bus
control interface.  There's one bit of the patch that I'm now
questioning after having looked over it again; it adds NULL-termination
to a hexstr2bin()-ed buffer in wpa_config_parse_string().  But I can't
see now where that would enter into a BLOB call stack anywhere.  Have to
go back and investigate.
