while playing with wpa_supplicant using several configurations I found out that
if the param 'freq' is not specified within the network block, the creation of a
new IBSS network will fail.
Actually the kernel waits for a freq param as it cannot decide on its behalf. At
the same time wpa_s is not providing any "default choice" leading to a EINVAL
result when trying to create the ibss network.
What should wpa_s do? Really provide a default choice? or simply print a more
detailed message to the user in order to let him notice the missing parameter?
Providing a default choice can be dangerous, imho..
