Sync wpa_supplicant man page with README changes
The man page source was not up-to-date with removed driver wrappers, so bring in the wpa_supplicant/README changes to make this somewhat closer to the current state. Signed-hostap: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi>

- <para> This is a generic Linux driver for Broadcom IEEE
- 802.11a/g cards. However, it is proprietary driver that is
- not publicly available except for couple of exceptions, mainly
- Broadcom-based APs/wireless routers that use Linux. The driver
- binary can be downloaded, e.g., from Linksys support site
- (http://www.linksys.com/support/gpl.asp) for Linksys
- WRT54G. The GPL tarball includes cross-compiler and the needed
- header file, wlioctl.h, for compiling wpa_supplicant. This
- driver support in wpa_supplicant is expected to work also with
- other devices based on Broadcom driver (assuming the driver
- includes client mode support).</para>
