Hello Jouni,

I had also posted it there as well.  However, because this
appeared to be triggered by the wpa_supplicant and the message
suggested that the rate being passed down was invalid, I wanted
to make sure it wasn't a problem in the wpa_supplicant code.
If you are certain it is not, then please disregard but in any case
thank you for commenting. :)
