mac80211: Don't sample max throughput rate in minstrel_ht

The current max throughput rate is known to be good as otherwise it
wouldn't be the max throughput rate. Since rate sampling can introduce
some overhead (by adding RTS for example or due to not aggregating the
frame) don't sample the max throughput rate.
