There are essentially none, except that the 'iwlist scan' obviously
starts a scan right away, and blocks waiting on the scan results, while
NetworkManager schedules scans at various points in time because it's
not a command-line tool that you explicitly invoke from a terminal.  But
the internal process is pretty much the same.
