Instrumenting wpa_supplicant with LTTng

Do you know wpa_supplicant so little that you really have to ask if it has
a **logging** or tracing system?  Haven't you not even read it's man page,
started it once by hand, looked at the command-line switches?

The big thing is always: what exactly do you want to find out with your
trace points?  What twitch is itching you?  Only then can someone say if
the thing you want to accomplish can be of general usage.

Greetings, Holger
