Subject: [PATCH 1/2] rtl8xxxu: Fix for authentication failure

This fix enables the same sequence of init behaviour as the alternative
working driver for the wireless rtl8723bu IC at
https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu

For exampe rtl8xxxu_init_device is now called each time
userspace wpa_supplicant is executed instead of just once when
modprobe is executed.

Along with 'Fix for bogus data used to determine macpower',
wpa_supplicant now reliably and successfully authenticates.

For rtl8xxxu-devel branch of git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jes/linux.git
