[PATCH 2/3] libertas_tf: don't defer firmware loading until start()




In order to be able to get a MAC address before we register the device
with ieee80211 we'll need to load the firmware way earlier.

There seems to be one problem with this: the device seems to start
with radio enabled and starts sending in frames right after the firmware
load finishes. This might be a firmware bug. Disable the radio as soon
as possible.
