EXT PW: Add support for psk parameter from external storage
This allows wpa_supplicant configuration file to be created without the PSK/passphrase value included in the file when a backend for external password storage is available. Following example can be used for developer testing: ext_password_backend=test:psk1=12345678 network={ ssid="test-psk" key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk=ext:psk1 } Signed-hostap: Jouni Malinen <j@w1.fi>
