Add SME support (separate authentication and association)
This can be used, e.g., with mac80211-based Linux drivers with nl80211. This allows over-the-air FT protocol to be used (IEEE 802.11r). Since the nl80211 interface needed for this is very recent (added today into wireless-testing.git), driver_nl80211.c has backwards compatibility code that uses WEXT for association if the kernel does not support the new commands. This compatibility code can be disabled by defining NO_WEXT_COMPAT. That code will also be removed at some point to clean up driver_nl80211.c.

fix wired IEEE 802.1X authentication
* fixed IEEE 802.11r key derivation function to match with the standard
(note: this breaks interoperability with previous version) [Bug 303]
+ * added better support for drivers that allow separate authentication
+ and association commands (e.g., mac80211-based Linux drivers with
+ nl80211; SME in wpa_supplicant); this allows over-the-air FT protocol

* added support for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
