The latest security support is in the net80211 sources that come with
madwifi (for Linux).  I don't know the state of this stuff in FreeBSD.
I don't think that porting should be too difficult.  I ask that if you
port this stuff, you do not clobber the changes that Charles Hannum and
I have made to net80211, especially not the ad hoc-mode support.
