The radio parameters are shared, but the security ones are not. In other
words, you'll need to have IEEE 802.1X enabled and RADIUS authentication
server (or local EAP server) configuration after that bss= line. Same
for wpa=2 and rsn_pairwise etc. (i.e., these will need to be duplicated
for each BSS that uses WPA2).
