Interesting "feature" Luci allows trailing space in SSID

Had me confused for about an hour as to why my manually entered ssid on a device was not connecting to the wifi.

Fortunately Luci also displays the ssid in quotes on the web interface and I eventually noticed the trailing space.

The IEEE 802.11 standards for SSIDs and PSKs are binary, taken as-is, that includes special characters, 'weird' symbols and non-printable characters - and whitespace.
