Note that while wpa_supplicant supports using driver-specific methods
for WPA and other settings, we want to push all drivers towards
conforming to the WEXT spec on this one.  That means support for
SIOCSIWAUTH and SIOCSIWENCODEEXT.  We _may_ have to allow
driver-specific support in the mean time, but I'd rather not do that if
at all possible.  (for instance, atmel doesn't seem to work right now
for normal WEP)
