There's some comments in lines 73-75. They were ignored in commit
0d4c3. Reverting said commit would solve this problem too. Any
thoughts what would be better? I like the old code, but the commit
message suggests that wpa_supplicant doesn't reassociate properly (at
least, that it didn't back then). If wpa_supplicant has improved, I'm
in favor of restoring the old code, which looks more reasonable to me.
Otherwise, the proposed patch will do.
