wpa_dbg(NULL, ...) and wpa_msg(NULL, ..) do not make any sense and
should I notice them, I will convert them to wpa_printf before
committing the patch..

If you want to make it way more difficult to get the patch through.. ;-)
Any wpa_msg with MSG_INFO or higher priority will need to be carefully
considered since it can cause problems if used with a single ctrl_iface
that is attached to run commands.
