Issues a wmi command to firmware when multicast rate change is received with the
new BSS_CHANGED_MCAST_RATE flag.  Also fixes the incorrect fixed_rate setting
for CCK rates which got introduced with addition of ath10k_rates_rev2 enum.

By default the firmware uses 1Mbps and 6Mbps rate for management packets
in 2G and 5G bands respectively. But when the user selects different
basic rates from the userspace, we need to send the management
packets at the lowest basic rate selected by the user.

+
+By default the firmware uses 1Mbps and 6Mbps rate for management packets
+in 2G and 5G bands respectively. But when the user selects different

+This change makes use of WMI_VDEV_PARAM_MGMT_RATE param for configuring the
+management packets rate to the firmware.

+Subject: [PATCH] ath10k: fix possible out of bound access of ath10k_rates array
+
+While using 'ath10k_mac_get_rate_hw_value()' to obtain the hw value
+from the passed bitrate, there is a chance of out of bound array access
+when wrong bitrate is passed. This is fixed by comparing the bitrates
+within the correct size of the ath10k_rates array.
+
+Fixes commit f279294e9ee2 ("ath10k: add support for configuring management
+packet rate"). Also correction made to some indents used in the above commit.
