This sounds quite problematic since IEEE P802.11be/D2.2 seems to imply
that MLO require RSN to be used and that would most likely mean SAE for
cases that do not use EAP or OWE.

What is the set of key management options this patch set is expected to
support? I'd like to start with SAE and OWE and not allow OPEN to match
the P802.11be expectations.
