Unfortunately these have fallen somewhat of a victim for other projects
and travel taking most of my time. We'll see if I can get to these over
the next weekend, but if not, this may need to wait until I get back
home in couple of weeks.

I'm fine with the D-Bus mechanism being addressed separately, but I
would like to see the needed nl80211 interface changes discussed on
linux-wireless mailing list rather sooner than later. It is important to
make sure that the needed functionality gets accepted to the upstream
kernel to avoid issues in supporting this cleanly with drivers that use
cfg80211.
