This is absolutely great feature for me. We were trying to log
wpa_printf messages in OpenWrt by redirecting stdout & stderr but it
was working until os_daemonize only. Logging directly to syslog is
exactly what we need.

This will allow us to solve issue I reported:

I already gave your patch a try and I can confirm it worked for me
