Can you also try the security/wpa_supplicant and security/wpa_supplicant-dev
el ports, both without the ifconfig mitigation patch? This will more than 
confirm that this is an upstream problem and not in the FreeBSD Makefiles. 
This would be of great help as I cannot reproduce the problem at boot but 
after boot using service netif (which the old wpa_supplicant 2.9 also had).

An additional confirmation that the -devel port has the same problem would 
help a lot.
