Why would either of those be needed? The new configuration parameters
would be completely independent of wpa_s->vendor_elem, i.e., they are
used only as a default value to set wpa_s->vendor_elem when bringing up
an interface. No further changes to the configuration parameter during
the lifetime of the interface would change wpa_s->vendor_elem and
similarly, no VENDOR_ELEM* command would change the value of the
configuration parameter.
