mac80211: add beacon filtering support

Add IEEE80211_HW_BEACON_FILTERING flag so that driver inform that it supports
beacon filtering. Drivers need to call the new function
ieee80211_beacon_loss() to notify about beacon loss.

/**
* DOC: Beacon filter support
*
* Some hardware have beacon filter support to reduce host cpu wakeups
* which will reduce system power consumption. It usuallly works so that
* the firmware creates a checksum of the beacon but omits all constantly
* changing elements (TSF, TIM etc). Whenever the checksum changes the
* beacon is forwarded to the host, otherwise it will be just dropped. That
* way the host will only receive beacons where some relevant information
* (for example ERP protection or WMM settings) have changed.
*
* Beacon filter support is informed with %IEEE80211_HW_BEACON_FILTER flag.
* The driver needs to enable beacon filter support whenever power save is
* enabled, that is %IEEE80211_CONF_PS is set. When power save is enabled,
* the stack will not check for beacon miss at all and the driver needs to
* notify about complete loss of beacons with ieee80211_beacon_loss().
