mac80211: Allow AP mode to be enabled
With the addition of basic rate set and TX queue parameter configuration and confirmation that power save buffering is working again, mac80211 is now in state that allows AP mode to be used without major problems. Consequently, it is time to allow this mode to be enabled without having to patch the kernel. AP mode requires hostapd for management frame processing and as such, configuring this mode is only allowed through cfg80211 (not with iwconfig and WEXT).
