wpa_supllicant's nl80211 driver makes NetworkManager report 100 link quality for all access points

My goal is to cut down to minimum the time it takes to connect fully to
an access point.

Due to that I want to use new and probably still unfinished nl80211
wpa_supplicant driver.

It works with NetworkManager quite well (I patched wpa_supplicant to use
nl80211 when NM asks for wext)

Except one thing: NM shows 100% quality on all access points.

Is this known?

Best regards,

I use latest -git versions of NM, wpa_supplicant, and kernel (latest
iwlwifi-git, based on wireless-testing)

I can CC <networkmanager-list at gnome.org> as well, but  I didn't because
I don't want to be accused of cross-posting... :-)
