Yeah, that's the bummer right now. Without it, I'd still be able 
to use most of the clearer framework, but need to re-schedule 
myself with a workqueue, to scan in pieces. I'd also again need 
the "full_scan"-parameter.

That is simple to test.

Also, I don't need to the send any of those NULL packets if I'm 
not connected, which I should test as well.

> All in all, it's a lot cleaner than what's there
