> From: Ayala Beker <ayala.beker at intel.com>
> Add support for drivers that support full AP client state, i.e., can handle
> adding stations that are not associated yet. For such drivers, add a station after
> processing the authentication request, instead of adding it in the association
> response callback.
> Doing so is beneficial in cases that the driver cannot handle the add station
> request, in which case it is useless to perform the complete connection
> establishment.

Please note that the patch still requires couple of fixes in cfg80211.
