As was noted in recent messages on the list, recent Debian builds (e.g.
#118, #124) has WiFi working. However, I had troubles connecting to my
Internet access point, with wpa_supplicant (or kernel while running it)
throwing timeout errors waiting for AP authentication response.

I tried to play with few seemingly related wpa_supplication config
but nothing had an effect (btw, it's a bit of chore, because on
