The AP should not include WPA IE in this kind of case. Anyway, it would
be fair to say that client could ignore such a bogus information if
configered to use non-WPA network. I changes this to be allowed, but
with a bit stricter conditions: key_mgmt must not allow any WPA mode. I
want to avoid accepting open AP if WPA would be enabled in configuration
even if non-WPA mode is included since that may just be a bug in the
configuration and this case here is just a workaround for a broken AP.
