    This moves all the key handling code out from ieee80211_ioctl.c
    into key.c and also does the following changes including documentation
    updates in mac80211.h:
    
     1) Turn off hardware acceleration for keys when the interface
        is down. This is necessary because otherwise monitor
        interfaces could be decrypting frames for other interfaces
        that are down at the moment. Also, it should go some way
        towards better suspend/resume support, in any case the
        routines used here could be used for that as well.
        Additionally, this makes the driver interface nicer, keys
        for a specific local MAC address are only ever present
        while an interface with that MAC address is enabled.
    
     2) Change driver set_key() callback interface to allow only
        return values of -ENOSPC, -EOPNOTSUPP and 0, warn on all
        other return values. This allows debugging the stack when
        a driver notices it's handed a key while it is down.
    
     3) Invert the flag meaning to KEY_FLAG_UPLOADED_TO_HARDWARE.
    
     4) Remove REMOVE_ALL_KEYS command as it isn't used nor do we
        want to use it, we'll use DISABLE_KEY for each key. It is
        hard to use REMOVE_ALL_KEYS because we can handle multiple
        virtual interfaces with different key configuration, so we'd
        have to keep track of a lot of state for this and that isn't
        worth it.
    
     5) Warn when disabling a key fails, it musn't.
    
     6) Remove IEEE80211_HW_NO_TKIP_WMM_HWACCEL in favour of per-key
        IEEE80211_KEY_FLAG_WMM_STA to let driver sort it out itself.
    
     7) Tell driver that a (non-WEP) key is used only for transmission
        by using an all-zeroes station MAC address when configuring.
    
     8) Change the set_key() callback to have access to the local MAC
        address the key is being added for.
