These patches add the capability of implementing the Authenticated Mesh Peering
Exchange entirely in userspace.  Open mesh networks can still be created
without the need of a userspace daemon.  For secured mesh networks, the daemon
takes control of the lifetime and the peer link state of mesh peers.

While working on this we encountered a few issues with the mesh stack which are
that are fixed in separate patches also included in this series.  

For a working userspace authentication daemon you can look at the ampe branch here:
