mac80211: use hardware flags for signal/noise units

trying to clean up the signal/noise code. the previous code in mac80211 had
confusing names for the related variables, did not have much definition of
what units of signal and noise were provided and used implicit mechanisms from
the wireless extensions.

this patch introduces hardware capability flags to let the hardware specify
clearly if it can provide signal and noise level values and which units it can
provide. this also anticipates possible new units like RCPI in the future.

for signal:

  IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_UNSPEC - unspecified, unknown, hw specific
  IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_DB     - dB difference to unspecified reference point
  IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_DBM    - dBm, difference to 1mW

for noise we currently only have dBm:

  IEEE80211_HW_NOISE_DBM     - dBm, difference to 1mW

if IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_UNSPEC or IEEE80211_HW_SIGNAL_DB is used the driver has
to provide the maximum value (max_signal) it reports in order for applications
to make sense of the signal values.

i tried my best to find out for each driver what it can provide and update it
but i'm not sure (?) for some of them and used the more conservative guess in
doubt. this can be fixed easily after this patch has been merged by changing
the hardware flags of the driver.
