This patch introduces 802.11ac support to mac80211 and hostapd. The split of
VHT160 in two 80 MHz bands is not yet supported, since it requires an
additional user supplied parameter for the channel of the second band.

[sven@open-mesh.com: Rebased patch, merged htmode and vhtmode,
removed special hwmode, replaced uci vht_capab list with overwritable
autoconfig, fixed hostapd integration, fixed commit description, add HT40+/-
for VHT modes, add VHT40 center_freq autoconfig, refactored major parts]
