MACsec support with IEEE 802.1X-2010 supplicant was added to
wpa_supplicant about a year ago. Though, it is available with only a
limited set of drivers currently (i.e., macsec_qca is the only driver
interface with support for this; Linux kernel does not yet have generic
commands available for all Ethernet drivers to do this).
