  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."
