mac80211: connect with HT20 if HT40 is not permitted
commit 3a40414f826a8f1096d9b94c4a53ef91b25ba28d upstream. Some changes to fix issues with HT40 APs in Korea and follow-up changes to allow using HT40 even if the local regulatory database disallows it caused issues with iwlwifi (and could cause issues with other devices); iwlwifi firmware would assert if you tried to connect to an AP that has an invalid configuration (e.g. using HT40- on channel 140.) Fix this, while avoiding the "Korean AP" issue by disabling HT40 and advertising HT20 to the AP when connecting.
