/etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant are ignored if wpa_supplicant is managed
by the NetworkManager,but I don't see any option to pass the -D<driver>
option to wpa_supplicant.

Correct, the settings in /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant can be harmful
when NetworkManager is used, because NetworkManager figures out whether
to use the wext, nl80211, or wired driver as appropriate.  What's the
reason you want to use a specific supplicant driver?


Simply the observation that wpa_supplicant fails to associate when
not using -Dwext
