FS#3137 - mac802.11sh commit broken and causing one radio to drop

Source of the problem: commit `b551660` `/lib/netifd/wireless/mac802.11sh`
Device problem occurs on: Netgear R7800, LinksysWRT1900ACSv2, Netgear EX6400, TP-Link Archer C60
Software versions of OpenWrt/LEDE: v19.07.3 and master

Steps to reproduce: I created a post here regarding the last WiFi client disconnecting from the AP stops working on that radio.

If I go into ‘Network > Wireless’ in LuCI and click the ‘Restart’ button on the 2.4 or 5GHz radio, that radio is the only radio that stays working, whereas the other radio says disabled and wireless not associated.

I can also replicate this via SSH/CLI running `wifi up radio0` which disables radio1. Running `wifi up` brings radio1 up this but drops radio0. If I run `wifi up` a second time both radios come back up.

My forum has been linked to a Netgear 7800 thread found here and there has been confirmation that there appears to be a problem with commit `b551660` from May 4, 2020 for `openwrt/package/kernel/mac80211/files/lib/netifd/wireless/`. Rolling back to commit `0495324` appears to fix this issue.

I too can confirm this by renaming `` to ``, downloading commit `0495324`, placing it under `/lib/netifd/wireless`, setting the permissions to `0755` and then running `wifi up radio0` in SSH/CLI. Radio0 (5GHz) drops as expected and after a couple of seconds it is back up all without affecting the radio1 (2.4GHz).

This is the broken commit

This is the working commit
