Although it slipped through review on the list and made it past
[testing], there is a bug in netctl 1.4 that can prevent automatically
generated wireless profiles from working. The bad commit was f5065. I
propose adding commit 3dc6d, which fixes the issue, directly as a
patch to the package in [core].
WPA profiles generated with `wifi-menu -o` will stop working in 1.4
because the detection of hex keys looks at $key instead of at $Key
(capital K). The commit referenced above fixes this issue. If we apply
it quickly, we might have it in before the majority of users has
upgraded to netctl 1.4.
