This is WPA/RSN IE and it needs to match with the one used in
(Re)Association Request. This IE is often generated in the driver and
because of this, it differs a bit based on which driver is used.
Two-octet difference in length is often because of the capabilities
field that is optional (and 16 bits in length).
