patch for wpa_supplicant.conf.5

+ Security Caution, If you assert scan_ssid=1 (Instead of default scan_ssid=0):
+ .in +2
+ Instead of just sending a broadcast Probe Request frame,
+ FreeBSD would also send directed Probe Request frames with specific names.
+ Those network names would be observable to hostile 3rd parties,
+ & could be abused as per
+ .in -2
