Actually, it would be nice if these were in some other log. syslog getting
full of this is not useful (well, to me anyway), but the information from
hostap is. Currently, I'm cutting a pasting this stuff out cause I want to
parse through it from time to time, but other syslog stuff that is as
important or more important get drowned out too easily. Any chance this
could go into some sort of other log file in /var/log?
