mac80211/cfg80211: Add BSS configuration options for AP mode
This change adds a new cfg80211 command, NL80211_CMD_SET_BSS, to allow AP mode BSS parameters to be changed from user space (e.g., hostapd). The drivers using mac80211 are expected to be modified with separate changes to use the new BSS info parameter for short slot time in the bss_info_changed() handler.
