OK. This is the key of the discussion. Do we take wpa_supplicant the
only implementation of userspace MLME or even decision making (ie. DLS
config) daemon? If so, we don't need the API. Otherwise we'd better have
the API in the kernel because we cannot expect both userspace MLME
implentation A and B support the same API (via IPC) for configuration.

Thanks,
