This would normally indicate that the driver tried to use PMKSA caching
by including PMKID in the association request, but a matching entry was
not found in the wpa_supplicant PMKSA cache.

EAP did not provide key material, e.g., because it did not actually
complete successfully (key may be generated, but the final success
message is not accepted, etc.).

I would like to see full debug log showing this behavior, i.e., output
of wpa_supplicant when run on foreground with -dd on the command line.
