Yeah, that makes sense. In which case you'd still need the whole
infrastructure to calculate the 'alternative' MSK. So we might as well
stick with your existing patch which just *uses* the alternative MSK.

I don't think there's much benefit in that. If they're going to have to
fight the lack of coherent error reporting to work out what the problem
is, and then take remedial action, then they might as well just
*configure* it not to use TLSv1.2. A patch is probably harder than the
config change (although Dan we *will* need NetworkManager to be able to
set it on demand according to the config).

The benefit in a code-based 'fix' is only really if it can be merged by
default and enabled whenever eap_workaround is set.
