  wpasupplicant (0.7.3-6ubuntu2.2) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Multiple patches to reduce the number of disconnections for WPA Enterprise
    roaming and Opportunistic Key Caching. (LP: #1187524)
  * In debian/patches:
    Cherry-pick patches fixing SME (Session Management Entity) for the nl80211
    driver, which works as a basis for the OKC patches.
  * In debian/patches:
    Cherry-pick patches to properly do OKC (Opportunistic Key Caching) which
    helps maintaining connectivity on networks secured with WPA Enterprise,
    especially on nl80211-based drivers -- these patches require SME, and add
    or fix key caching and handling of the cache entries.
  * debian/patches/force-enable-okc.patch: force Opportunistic Key Caching to
    be enabled.
  * debian/patches/less-aggressive-roaming.patch: use less aggressive roaming
    settings to avoid switching to another AP unnecessarily, when the actual
    signal level difference is small.
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-dbus-null-error.patch: Don't send NULL to
  * debian/patches/0001-nl80211-Fix-UNSPEC-signal-quality-reporting.patch: fix
    marking qual as invalid rather than signal level.
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-squelch-driver-disconnect-spam.patch: recover
    cleanly from streams of disconnect messages (like on iwl3945).
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-assoc-timeout.patch: increase association
