Enhancements include support for EAPoL over NL80211, agent functionality to client, and authentication methods of EAP-PWD and EAP-GTC.

The fixes include handling disconnects better, an issue with string start calculation for MS-CHAP v2, and other issues resolved.

This updated Intel wireless daemon can be downloaded from Git.
