Sorry but if wpa_supplicant crashes for whatever reason (something
that I have never experienced so far, to be honest), then it means
that wpa_supplicant is not doing its job properly. The only way for a
program to do its job properly is by *stayng alive* not by

If a program crashes while doing its job, then you don't need a
supervisor, rather a piece of software which does its job without
crashing. Crashing should not be the norm, ever. And the problem is
not solved by respawning, ever.
