[PATCH] softmac: do shared key auth in workqueue
Johann Uhrmann reported a bcm43xx crash and Michael Buesch tracked it down to a problem with the new shared key auth code (recursive calls into the driver) This patch (effectively Michael's patch with a couple of small modifications) solves the problem by sending the authentication challenge response frame from a workqueue entry. I also removed a lone \n from the bcm43xx messages relating to authentication mode - this small change was previously discussed but not patched in.
