band-aid for ESSID length == 1

Attached is a patch that fixes the problem that ESSIDs with length == 1
are rejected by the Atheros stack. Note that this patch may introduce
other failure modes, so it's not ready for inclusion just yet.

It also adds rejection of ESSIDs of length 32 or greater, which cause
a buffer overrun somewhere deeper in the stack.
