ath10k/ath10k-ct: support multicast and management rate control

Drivers with software rate control can directly use the selected multicast
rate for multicast/broadcast frames and the minimal basic rate for
management frames. But drivers with offloaded rate control algorithms must
be informed about such upper layer decisions to configure the
hardware/firmware.

A new BSS_CHANGED_MCAST_RATE is introduced in mac80211 to automatically
inform all drivers. ath10k can detect this event and forward it via WMI to
the driver. The already existing BSS_CHANGED_BASIC_RATES can be used to
select the management rate.

Without the WMI commands, a low rate (not necessarily one from the basic
rates) is used for bcast/mcast/management frames. This means that the
/etc/config/wireless settings basic_rate and mcast_rate would have no
effect on the rates selected by this driver for the mentioned frames.

+Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: notify driver for change in multicast rates
+
+With drivers implementing rate control in driver or firmware
+rate_control_send_low() may not get called, and thus the
+driver needs to know about changes in the multicast rate.
+
+Add and use a new BSS change flag for this.

+Subject: [PATCH] ath10k: add support for configuring management packet rate
+
+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.
+
+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.

Subject: ath10k-ct: support for multicast and management rate control
Drivers with software rate control can directly use the selected multicast
rate for multicast/broadcast frames and the minimal basic rate for
management frames. But drivers with offloaded rate control algorithms must
be informed about such upper layer decisions to configure the
hardware/firmware.
A new BSS_CHANGED_MCAST_RATE is introduced in mac80211 to automatically
inform all drivers. ath10k-ct can detect this event and forward it via WMI
to the driver. The already existing BSS_CHANGED_BASIC_RATES can be used to
select the management rate.
Without the WMI commands, a low rate (not necessarily one from the basic
rates) is used for bcast/mcast/management frames. This means that the
/etc/config/wireless settings basic_rate and mcast_rate would have no
effect on the rates selected by this driver for the mentioned frames.

+Subject: [PATCH] ath10k: support for multicast rate control
+
+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.
+
+Tested on QCA9984 with firmware ver 10.4-3.6-00104

+Subject: [PATCH] ath10k: add support for configuring management packet rate
+
+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.
+
+This change makes use of WMI_VDEV_PARAM_MGMT_RATE param for configuring the
+management packets rate to the firmware.
+
+Chipsets Tested : QCA988X, QCA9887, QCA9984
+FW Tested : 10.2.4-1.0-41, 10.4-3.6.104
