mac80211: mesh: only get tsf if we need it
The local TSF timer is used to compute the timing offset between mesh peers on beacon reception. However, asking the device for the TSF is not very accurate, so we prefer to use rx->mactime if available. In the latter case, calling drv_get_tsf() just adds more delay into the RX path, so skip it if we can.
