madwifi session timeout issue

I have noticed that session timeout was not working properly with hostapd
and madwifi driver. The reason is because WLAN_STA_AUTH flag is not being
set on madwifi_new_sta function.
Also data counters was not being updated on radius after a session timeout.
This looks like to the fact that station is deauthenticated before polling
the counters from madwifi. So I have modified ap_handle_session_timer as
void ap_handle_session_timer(void *eloop_ctx, void *timeout_ctx)
hostapd *hapd = eloop_ctx;
struct sta_info *sta = timeout_ctx;
if (!(sta->flags & WLAN_STA_AUTH))
hostapd_logger(hapd, sta->addr, HOSTAPD_MODULE_IEEE80211,
HOSTAPD_LEVEL_INFO, "deauthenticated due to "
hostapd_sta_deauth(hapd, addr, WLAN_REASON_PREV_AUTH_NOT_VALID);
After this modification, session timeouts started to work fine.
