Not really. This sounds like a clear driver bug and I do not want to
make wpa_supplicant any more complex by adding workarounds for this kind
of issue. The driver should be fixed or at least the workaround in the
driver code should generate a disassociation event if it does not
configure firmware back to the state it was in before (i.e., working WPA
connection in this case).
