I don't know whether this this is the only reason for problems, but at
least the ASSOCINFO event is missing the IE information. This is
something that should be reported on the atmel driver mailing list.

I have not used Atmel cards, so I do not know what to expect from them
or the driver. The scan results were getting somewhat mixed up with
other time outs and the first scan failed for some reason. I don't know
whether Atmel driver supports scan_ssid=1. Anyway, the driver was
reporting association, but no EAPOL-Key packets were received from the
AP after this.
