I believe cards that actually support LEAP (airo, ipw)  do most of
the association work in firmware. Unfortunately, that's a black box
that you can't easily see into. wpa_supplicant (and any other stuff
that talks to the card) just sets up a bunch of values and pushes them
to the card. The firmware then returns 'success/failure' for the
association. You may be able to figure out if you configuration is at
fault if you enable verbose debugging for the wireless driver.
 I'm quite curious; do any other cards actually support LEAP? How is
LEAP done with softmac drivers like bcm43xx? Is it implemented at all?
