The in-kernel storage is currently limited to 128-bit keys. There is major
work needed in this area to support larger keys and AES but it's not a
simple matter. Since WEP is basically useless (regardless of the key
length) I don't think it's worth the effort to support larger keys right
now. (I only fixed the 128-bit keys because it didn't require modifying
the kernel.) Oh and 64-bit keys just get zero-padded to 104 bits so that's
not really important.
