From the wpa_supplicant(8) (version 0.6.0 on my system) manpage:
-u Enabled DBus control interface.
Dunno about -f, I cannot see in main.c of wpa_supplicant source that getopt
knows about such an option.

-u is there. I guess there could be differences to what I am looking at and
what fedora core 8 actually ships with, I do not know that.
