wl12xx: Clean up the dummy packet mechanism
The current implementation allocates a skb each time one is requested by the firmware. Since dummy packets are handled differently than regular packets, the skb needs to be marked. Currently, this is done by setting the pkt_type member to 5. This might not be safe, as we cannot be sure that there won't be any other packets with this pkt_type value. Since the packet does not change from one request to another, we can simply allocate a dummy packet template and always send it. All changes to the skb done during packet preparation must be reverted, so the same skb can be reused. The dummy packets are not transmitted, therefore there's no need to set the BSSID or our own MAC address. In addition, the header portion of the packet was zeroed by mistake, so fix that as well.
