	Not everybody is using a wireless card, and of those using
wireless cards, not all of them are using WPA. Therefore, my goal is

	If you don't like the current situation, there are two avenues :
		o use different ioctls
		o use a separate common module to demultiplex the ioctl

	Check the archive of netdev mailing list a few months back.
