Thanks guys for the clarifications, and my sympathies for the service issues.
Now that I have your attention, may I refer you to the bug in question:
The wpa_supplicant is indeed used in wired mode, and I do have a patch to
share/review. Just wanted to get a feel on how to go about this because the
patch will affect the 'Peer State Machine' defined in rfc4137 flow chart.
Really appreciate your time.
