Thanks, applied. Though, if there are really authentication issues with
the default configuration, I would call that a driver bug. When both
OPEN and SHARED are enabled, the AP is supposed to accept both Open
System and Shared Key authentication. In other words, the auth_alg
parameter should only be able to remove one of the default options and
not really resolve authentication issues.
