An update that has 6 recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:

The following bugs are fixed by this update:
- #625403: Fixed wireless hardware to wext/nl80211 WPA
driver mapping and changed to use -Dnl80211,wext by
default for untested drivers to let the wpa_supplicant
fallback to wext when nl80211 is not available and avoid
failures with non-mac80211 based hardware drivers.
Adjusted info message about untested drivers and enabled
untested driver handling also in case wpa_supplicant is
not required but the user prefers to use it. Fixes also
bugs #623340,#623676,#624182,#631283.
- #616765: Fixed check whether ipv6 is enabled or not in
/sbin/ifup-dhcp to avoid dhcpv6 client start in case the
interface is configured to start both, dhcpv4 and dhcpv6
clients.
