        mac80211: explicitly disable/enable QoS
    mac80211 is telling drivers, in particular
    iwlwifi, whether QoS is enabled or not.
    However, this is only relevant for station mode,
    since only then will any device send nullfunc
    frames and need to know whether they should be
    QoS frames or not. In other modes, there are
    (currently) no frames the device is supposed to
    When you now consider virtual interfaces, it
    becomes apparent that the current mechanism is
    inadequate since it enables/disables QoS on a
    global scale, where for nullfunc frames it has
    to be on a per-interface scale.
    Due to the above considerations, we can change
    the way mac80211 advertises the QoS state to
    drivers to only ever advertise it as "off" in
    station mode, and make it a per-BSS setting.
