Yes WEXT is dead as far as future development is considered, since
supplicant already has ibss_rsn.c, wondering what is its functional status,
will rsn in ibss mode work by using wpa_supplicant or not? let it be
cfg80211 or WEXT.

if it will work, what are the cmds/events the driver needs to support?

if it won't work, what else needs to be taken care by wpa_supplicant in
addition to the existing functionality?
