[PATCH 6/9] tests: Fix potentially referencing non existing attribute

In wpaspy.py in the Ctrl object constructor there is a try/except.
In the except part the code references the s attribute of the
object. This attribute is only created later in the try part.
If an exception occurs before the attribute creation then
the except part references a non existing attribute.
Fix that by assigning None to the s attribute at the beginning
of the try part.
