The library was run-tested on WRT-3200ACM using uhttpd with different
options, turning them on one by one cumulatively.  The size varied from
226K with all options off, to 309K with all options.

Enabling hardware acelleration and AES-CCM at the same time results in a
build failure, which dents my confidence in them.  Nonetheless, uhttpd
connects without a problem, and I can confirm /dev/crypto or AF_ALG
sockets open.

The package currently lacks a maintainer, so I've added myself.  I've
split the changes in 3 commits: one just with the version bump and some
minor Makefile changes; a second big one, more prone to trouble, and the
third one adjusting removed wolfssl options in hostapd.
