This looks a bit problematic since this seems to be able to drop a
special scan request that was issued through the control interface. Why
is this needed? Isn't it enough for sme_authenticate() to add a high
priority sme-connect radio work that ends up getting added to the
beginning of the queue, i.e., to be processed before the pending scan
radio work if one was there?
