Hello all,

New to hostap!

IEEE Std 802.11ax-2021: Part 11: Amendment 1: Enhancements for High
-Efficiency WLAN, section 12.12.2 Security constraints in the 6 GHz band states:
"The STA shall use management frame protection (MFPR=1) when using RSN."

Pursued the code but I didn't see this implemented (yet?). Am I
missing something? If not, I'll submit a patch.
