           Summary: [patch] wpa_supplicant.conf(5): Document global

Diff for file /usr.sbin/wpa/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.5

The man page does not mention the global parameter "update_config" which is
useful when using wpa_cli(8), as trying to save the changes made through it
will fail if update_config is not enabled.

I personally ran into this issue (could not save changes and man pages were of
no help) and imagine other new comers might run into it as well.
