mac80211: Fix IBSS disconnect
Currently, when a station leaves an IBSS network, the corresponding BSS is not dropped from cfg80211 if there are other active stations in the network. But, the small window that is present when trying to determine a station's status based on IEEE80211_IBSS_MERGE_INTERVAL introduces a race. Instead of trying to keep the BSS, always remove it when leaving an IBSS network. There is not much benefit to retain the BSS entry since it will be added with a subsequent join operation. This fixes an issue where a dangling BSS entry causes ath9k to wait for a beacon indefinitely.
