wpa_supplicant: Allow pre-shared (CAK,CKN) pair for MKA
This enables configuring key_mgmt=NONE + mka_ckn + mka_cak. This allows wpa_supplicant to work in a peer-to-peer mode, where peers are authenticated by the pre-shared (CAK,CKN) pair. In this mode, peers can act as key server to distribute keys for the MACsec instances. This is what some MACsec switches support, and even without HW support, it's a convenient way to setup a network. Signed-off-by: Sabrina Dubroca <sd@queasysnail.net>
