following patches bind rts threshold to vif.
I think it might be useful in multi channel operation
(one chip handling multiple virtual interfaces on different
channels).

RTS threshold is still set with NL80211_CMD_SET_WIPHY, and can
be now executed for both hw and vif, so it's backward compatible
(from userspace).

As much as I like the idea of having per vif rts/cts settings, the rts/cts
user space API is useless as long as these settings are bluntly ignored by
certain rate control algorithms. I already had to explain to a dozen people
who turned rts/cts off via this API does not really turn it off.
Therefore, I suggest to remove the rts/cts API altogether, so that nobody
falls into the trap of believing this does anything useful.

Oops, I totally missed IEEE80211_TX_RC_USE_RTS_CTS. Thanks for comment!

BR,
Lukasz
