To all,

I'm sorry to break into this thread, but I was just curious as to what will
eventually happen to wpa_supplicant. Based upon Mr. Malinen's words, as well as 
what
a few others in this thread have been saying, will WPA and 802.1x eventually 
become
generalized driver frameworks in the kernel (like MII), using the current 
Crypto API
and crypto drivers?

I'm just asking from an enduser perspective here, because eventually I will be
purchasing an 802.11g Prism54 device and would like to have an idea of the 
relative
ease of configuring 802.1x and WPA in the future.

Thanks,

Brad
