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.
