Fixing WEP bustage in hostap mode since 5.2-RELEASE.
- WEP TX fix:
The original code called software crypto, ieee80211_crypto_encap(),
which never worked since IEEE80211_KEY_SWCRYPT was never flagged due to
ieee80211_crypto_newkey() assumes that wi always supports hardware based
crypto regardless of operational mode(by virtue of IEEE80211_C_WEP).
This fix works around that issue by adding wi_key_alloc() to force
the use of s/w crypto. Also if anyone ever decides to cleanup ioctl
handling where key changes wouldn't cause a call to wi_init() every time,
we'll need wi_key_alloc() to DTRT.
In addition to that, this fix also adds code to wi_write_wep() to force
existing keys to be switched between h/w and s/w crypto such that an
operation mode change(sta <-> hostap) will flag IEEE80211_KEY_SWCRYPT
- WEP RX fix:
Clear IEEE80211_F_DROPUNENC even in hostap mode. Quote from Sam:
"This is really gross but I don't see an easy way around it.
By doing it we lose the ability to independently drop unencode
frames (and support mixed wep/!wep use). We should really be
setting the EXCLUDE_UNENCRYPTED flag written in wi_write_wep
based on IEEE80211_F_DROPUNENC but with our clearing it we can't
depend on it being set properly."
