It looks like the WPA 4-Way Handshake is completed successfully and PTK
is configured for unicast encryption/decryption. However, at this point,
the driver seems to be deciding to disassociate with the AP for some
reason. That reason code 8 is "Disassociated because sending station is
leaving (or has left) BSS" which is somewhat generic and does not really
tell the exact reason for driver doing this. Unfortunately, I don't know
how to best debug what the driver is doing so this question would more
likely need someone with more experience with the FreeBSD driver. From
wpa_supplicant view point, everything was going fine in the negotiation
until the driver reported disconnection.
