Since these are wpa_dbg() and not wpa_printf() calls, these would show
up in wpa_cli and especially the (auth) one shows up in common cases due
to cfg80211 behavior ("Operation already in progress"). As such, these
would result in undesired entries in wpa_cli and other programs using
control interface. Furthermore, these should be wpa_msg() instead of
wpa_dbg() after the change to MSG_INFO. Anyway, I don't think I would
apply this because of the way too common entries these would show in
external programs for cases that are expected behavior with at least
older versions of cfg80211.
