My main question on this patch is whether that should indeed be done by
default instead of adding this configuration parameter to do that
conditionally. Over-the-DS case is not currently used unless explicitly
requested for a particular roam, but if there is agreement on it being
better for all cases, it should be used by default if supported by the
AP.
