mac80211: provide interface iterator for drivers

Sometimes drivers need to know which interfaces are associated with
their hardware. Rather than forcing those drivers to keep track of
the interfaces that were added, this adds an iteration function to

As it is intended to be used from the interface add/remove callbacks,
the iteration function may currently only be called under RTNL.
