I am developing a Linux driver for CSR's wireless network chips. I am
testing the driver's interoperability with wpa_supplicant.

I was unable to exchange data with an AP using WEP encryption and
pre-shared-key authentication.
I found that the Wext driver incorrectly set the PrivacyInvoked property
to false, the attached patch (copied from driver_madwifi.c) fixes it.
