I've got a lot of time pressure, so I will stick with the current code
base. I am also figuring out as I go the best way to adapt to VXWorks. I
thought it might be fun to come back to wpa_supplicant after I'm done with
the port and contribute some well-considered changes to a more current

Cheers, Bob
