The problem here is that not all interfaces might be present at boot
time. wpa_supplicant currently has no way to say "add the following
interface". If it did, we could just make wpa_supplicant a requirement
of the main network rc.d script and add interfaces as we go.

Similiarly after an interface went away, it would just inform
wpa_supplicant that it should no longer care about it.

I've added Jouni to the CC, he is the best person to decide if such a
change would be acceptable for wpa_supplicant.
