Hmm, ok. Thanks.

I'm currently debugging a driver race which inhibits WPA-EAP connections if
PMKSA-caching is used => I'd like to disable it for debugging purposes. For
common usage disabling it does not make much sense.

Do you think it's worth to add a config entry to enable/disable PMKSA caching?
