Modularized encryption and individual station keys

I just committed redesigned version of Host AP encryption support to CVS. The new version includes easy mechanism for adding new encryption algorithms as loadable kernel modules. In addition, it adds support for individual station keys ("WEP key mapping"), i.e., each station can now use different key for unicast frames (broadcast/multicast frames will use default keys).

All the changes are available as CVS snapshot from Please check the end of README.prism2 for instructions and examples on how to configure station specific keys. Please also note that this version has quite a bit of new code that I haven't yet tested very thoroughly. There is thus quite large change of something not working and crashing, i.e., this is certainly not yet for production use.
