[PATCH for v4.9 LTS 68/86] mac80211: initialize SMPS field in HT capabilities




From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 43071d8fb3b7f589d72663c496a6880fb097533c ]

ibss and mesh modes copy the ht capabilites from the band without
overriding the SMPS state. Unfortunately the default value 0 for the
SMPS field means static SMPS instead of disabled.

This results in HT ibss and mesh setups using only single-stream rates,
even though SMPS is not supposed to be active.

Initialize SMPS to disabled for all bands on ieee80211_hw_register to
ensure that the value is sane where it is not overriden with the real
SMPS state.
