> Now we can configure the network block so that it allows MFP for the
> NL80211_CMD_CONNECT command. If the kernel finds an AP that requires MFP,
> it'll be able to connect to it.
> Note that since NL80211_MFP_OPTIONAL isn't supported for
> NL80211_CMD_ASSOCIATE, we need to take the MFP configuration outside
> nl80211_connect_common.
> In addition, check that NL80211_EXT_FEATURE_MFP_OPTIONAL is supported, to
> be backward compatible with older kernels.

Please note that this patch is supposed to go on top of "4-way handshake offload support" series, or at least it requires to sync the nl80211_copy.h.
