I've confirmed to work the driver can work Cisco Aironet 350 AP and
CiscoSecure ACS RADIUS server, though the protocol is still unclear.

I noticed similar key distribution protocol is supported for 3Com XJACK
Wireless Card (no netbsd driver yet), which is incompatible with Cisco.

Since the security is still discussed in 802.11i (former 802.11e security),
and the interface is subject to change.  So I'd like to keep the function
experimental and won't commit the changes to ifconfig soon.
