CCKM roam fails

2540 NOT Mar 11 10:56:39.652410 wpa_supplicant(1031)-CCKM: wpa_cckm_reassoc_process: RN is 2, try to Fast Roaming via CCKM

2544 ERR Mar 11 10:56:39.655894 wpa_supplicant(1031)-CCKM: wpa_cckm_reassoc_process: no CCKM ie found
2545 ERR Mar 11 10:56:39.655945 wpa_supplicant(1031)-CCKM: wpa_cckm_reassoc_process: Fast Roaming failed... Initial Assoc start

This forces a full authentication

During certificate exchange

Phone eventually gets connected, but see this happening on subsequent roams.
It eventually gets connected, but then we end up with a wlan chip crash.

* AP different models could be a possible factor contributing to this issue. Because wlan chip needs to switch the data rate/bandwidth frequently during the roaming.
