Modify /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant to pass options and add -w (wait for device) as default option

Description of problem:
There is no method of easily passing options to the wpa_supplicant init scripts.

/etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant to allow the setting of options through this
It would also be good to allow wpa_supplicant to start with the -w flag, if it
starts before the device is available (or brought up).
