      rt2x00: Add per-interface structure · 6bb40dd1

      Rework the interface handling. Delete the interface structure
      and replace it with a per-interface structure. This changes the
      way rt2x00 handles the active interface drastically.
      
      Copy ieee80211_bss_conf to the this rt2x00_intf structure during
      the bss_info_changed() callback function. This will allow us to
      reference it later, and removes the requirement for the device flag
      SHORT_PREAMBLE flag which is interface specific.
      
      Drivers receive the option to give the maximum number of virtual
      interfaces the device can handle. Virtual interface support:
      rt2400pci: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt2500pci: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt2500usb: 1 sta or 1 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt61pci: 1 sta or 4 ap, * monitor interfaces
      rt73usb: 1 sta or 4 ap, * monitor interfaces
      
      At the moment none of the drivers support AP and STA interfaces
      simultaneously, this is a hardware limitation so future support
      will be very unlikely.
      
      Each interface structure receives its dedicated beacon entry,
      with this we can easily work with beaconing while multiple master
      mode interfaces are currently active.
      
      The configuration handlers for the MAC, BSSID and type are
      often called together since they all belong to the interface
      configuration. Merge the 3 configuration calls and cleanup
      the API between rt2x00lib and the drivers. While we are cleaning
      up the interface configuration anyway, we might as well clean up
      the configuration handler as well.
