Now that there is 0.3 version in wmediumd.git, I started running tests
with it. For some reason, all the wmediumd test cases (i.e., the
existing ones and the one added in this series) are failing about half
of the time due to connectivity check failing. Any idea why that
happens? Is there now some packet loss being enabled by default that
causes this? Is that on purpose?

I cannot really move to this setup since the hwsim test cases are
supposed to pass every time they are run. In other words, either the
test cases need to be modified if wmediumd is dropping packets or
wmediumd need to be modified. I'm not sure what exactly changed here, so
I'm just going back to my old wmediumd snapshot from a year ago for
now and won't be applying these patches until the current issues are
