LEAP does not generate the part of the MSK that would be needed to build
the IEEE 802.11r key hierarchy. As such, it won't work with 802.11r

Why would anyone use LEAP with 802.11r? Or really, with anything
anymore.. It has been shown to have major security issues and much
better alternatives are available.
