What would this be used for? I'm not sure I understand why it would be
useful to set bss->wpa_key_mgmt to WPA_KEY_MGMT_NONE. If you do not want
WPA/WPA2, you can set wpa=0. Leaving wpa to non-zero (i.e., enabled) and
setting wpa_key_mgmt to WPA_KEY_MGMT_NONE would likely result in
undefined behavior and pretty strange WPA/RSN IE contents.
