if driver stuck in connection and not able to clear
wdev->conect_keys in cfg80211 layer.below error comes
at wpa_supplicant.
nl80211: MLME connect failed: ret=-115 (Operation now in progress)
This happens because cfg layer return 115 after chceking wdev->connect_keys.
now connct command will never reach to driver.
there is one way to clear wdev->connect_keys call
wpa_driver_nl80211_disconnect() explicitly and try to make connection.
