Description Dan Williams 2008-06-02 17:35:34 EDT
Backport the IW_ENCODE_TEMP patch to RHEL 5's wpa_supplicant package.  It's been
in Fedora since F7 so it's pretty well tested, and it does solve the issue of
the airo driver not being able to connect to 802.1x-enabled WiFi access points.
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-06-02 17:36:48 EDT
Very easy to QA as well, and the patch has no impact on drivers other than airo,
because only airo needs/implements the IW_ENCODE_TEMP functionality.
