The main requirements:
- support CCMP encryption/decryption of unicast robust management frames
  (subset of Action frames, Deauthentication, Disassociation)
- support BIP and IGTK configuration for group addressed robust
  management frames (TX-only for AP, RX-only for STA); I would expect
  most drivers to use software implementation on the host CPU for this
  taken into account that there is only very limited use of group
  addressed robust management frames
- SA Query mechanism (mac80211-based drivers get this pretty much
  automatically from hostapd for AP mode and mac80211 for STA)
- ability to configure RSN capabilities into RSN element and to
  provide the received element to user space (again, most mac80211-based
  drivers should work as-is)
