EXT PW: Add framework for supporting external password storage
This new mechanism can be used to make wpa_supplicant using external storage (e.g., key store in the operating system) for passwords, passphrases, and PSKs. This commit is only adding the framework part needed to support this, i.e., no actual configuration parameter can yet use this new mechanism. In addition, only a simple test backend is added to allow developer testing of the functionality. Signed-hostap: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi>
