The exact behavior depends on which driver you are using.. If you want
to control BSS selection completely, one option could be to specify the
bssid parameter in the network block so that there will be only a single
match in the scan results. Or if you are fine with a source code change
for this, just force wpa_supplicant_need_to_roam() return 0 in
wpa_supplicant/events.c.
