The "adhoc" media option for wi driver is now used for standard adhoc
mode (IBSS mode) to be consistent with other 802.11 drivers.

The old lucent adhoc demo mode can be specified by the "adhoc,flag0"
media option.  So if you are using this mode, the mediaopt in ifconfig(8)
argument should be changed.

Note that there are no changes in wiconfig(8) command, so that if you
are using adhoc demo mode by "wiconfig -p 3", it is still valid.

IBSS mode and infrastructure mode is not distinguished in Lucent/Agere
card, so do not use the same network name (nwid) for IBSS and AP if you
want use the card.
