doc patch adding documentation for passphrase

This documentation looks to be correct for wpa_supplicant but hostapd appears to detect an encoded passphrase by the number of characters, as seen in the current version of (same code in 8.09 and trunk)

        case "$enc" in
                        config_get psk "$vif" key
                        if [ ${#psk} -eq 64 ]; then
                                append hostapd_cfg "wpa_psk=$psk" "$N"
                                append hostapd_cfg "wpa_passphrase=$psk" "$N"

IMO we should consolidate on one convention or the other; my preference is autodetecting based on the key length. I'm going to cross-link with the mailing list thread on the same topic and see who bites in either location.
