Hi Sergey, all,

@Sergey: I put you on the list of recipients since you provided the version bump to buildroot.

Since hostapd 2.10 the wpa_supplicant build ignores the two options CONFIG_BUILD_WPA_CLIENT_SO and CONFIG_NO_WPA_PASSPHRASE.

This leads to the following build error in buildroot when BR2_PACKAGE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_WPA_CLIENT_SO is selected:

  /usr/bin/install: cannot stat '/buildroot/build/build/wpa_supplicant-2.10/wpa_supplicant/libwpa_client.so': No such file or directory

The Bug was probably introduced with commit [0] which reworked the .config parsing.
The two mentioned options are now evaluated before the .config file is parsed an thus ignored.

I'm not familiar enough with the wpa_supplicant build to come up with a proper patch. But maybe someone is willing to take a look at this.
