    etc                  network.subr 
    usr.sbin/wpa/wpa_supplicant driver_freebsd.c 
  MFC network.subr r1.181, driver_freebsd.c r1.15
    Change wpa_supplicant to down the interface at the start of the init routine.
    wpa_supplicant expects that it has exclusive access to the net80211 state so
    when its starts poking in the WEP/WPA settings and the card is already
    scanning it can cause net80211 to try and associate incorrectly with a
    protected AP.
    This is an inconvenience for firmware based cards such as iwi where it can be
    sent an auth instruction with incomplete security info and cause a firmware
    Remove the 'ifconfig up' from network.subr since wpa_supplicant will
    immediately down the interface again.
