Another possibility would be to stay at the netdev level and only use
the device's L2 capabilities.

For that we probably need some netdev extensions for handling the setup
of a WiFi network (e.g., search for networks, join & set credentials,
...). Apart from that, WiFi behaves very similar to ethernet.

No need to limit this to GNRC, and moreso, no need to go with the vendor
IP stack.
