mac80211: Get rid of search loop for rate group index



Finding the group index for a specific rate is done by looping through
all groups and returning if the correct one is found. This code is
called for each tx'ed frame and thus it makes sense to reduce its
runtime.

Do this by calculating the group index by this formula based on the SGI
and HT40 flags as well as the stream number:

idx = (HT40 * 2 * MINSTREL_MAX_STREAMS) +
      (SGI * MINSTREL_MAX_STREAMS) +
      (streams - 1)

Hence, the groups are ordered by th HT40 flag first, then by the SGI
flag and afterwards by the number of used streams.

This should reduce the runtime of minstrel_ht_get_group_idx
considerable.
