wpa_msg() with MSG_INFO is not fine for an event that happens frequently
during normal operations (i.e., without any kind of real error
condition). I don't think I would add wpa_printf(MSG_INFO) for this
either for the same reason. So yes, using MSG_INFO for these would sound
excessive unless the real error cases can be somehow identified (e.g.,
check that errno is not that EALREADY or whatever the common non-error
case is).
