ath9k: Fix FIF_BCN_PRBRESP_PROMISC handling
This is a port of commit 91ed19f5f66a7fe544f0ec385e981f43491d1d5a for 2.6.29. Without this after scanning your device will set the association ID to something bogus and what is being reported is multicast/broadcast frame are not being received. For details see this bug report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498502 >From the original commit: So that a new created IBSS network doesn't break on the first scan. It seems to Sujith and me that this stupid code unnecessary, too. So remove it...
