mac80211: no BSS changes to driver from beacons processed during scanning
There is no need to send BSS changes to driver from beacons processed during scanning. We are more interested in beacons from an AP with which we are associated - these will still be used to send updates to driver as the beacons are received without scanning. This change┬Ěremoves the requirement that bss_info_changed needs to be atomic. The beacons received during scanning are processed from a tasklet, but if we do not call bss_info_changed for these beacons there is no need for it to be atomic. This function (bss_info_changed) is called either from workqueue or ioctl in all other instances.
