I would not count on hostapd enforcing all the UI or configuration
requirements for WPS 2.0.. Anyway, I did apply this, but with some
changes to make it match with the WSC 2.0 requirement, i.e., if WPA
is enabled, WPA2/CCMP has to be enabled (e.g., WPA/CCMP would not be
enough and neither would WPA/CCMP with WPA2/TKIP).
