mac80211: fix HT beacon-based channel switch handling
When an HT AP is advertising channel switch in a beacon, it doesn't (and shouldn't, according to 802.11-2012 Table 8-20) include a secondary channel offset element. The only possible interpretation is that the previous secondary channel offset remains valid, so use that when switching channel based only on beacon information. VHT requires the Wide Bandwidth Channel Switch subelement to be present in the Channel Switch Wrapper element, so the code for that is probably ok (see 802.11ac Draft 4, 8.4.2.165.)
