mac80211: assign seqnums for group QoS frames
According to 802.11-2012, paragraph 4, QoS data frames with a group address in the Address 1 field have sequence numbers allocated from the same counter as non-QoS data and management frames. Without this flag, some drivers may not assign sequence numbers, and in rare cases frames might get dropped. Set the control flag accordingly.
