FS#619 - mac80211: AP+11s VIFs broken

When two VIFs are configured in AP and 11s mode, the 11s interface won’t come up correctly, the channel is unset in the iwinfo output:

# iwinfo

As soon as there is a second mesh point and some traffic, the kernel log is spammed with messages like the following:

The mesh0 interface is shown as NO-CARRIER, and obviously, no connection is possible. No other unusual log messages occur.

The issue affects both master (r3680-0ebc681) and the current HEAD of lede-17.01. The 17.01.0 release was fine, so I expect that something in https://git.lede-project.org/?p=source.git;a=commitdiff;h=703515f889124248480f39d65f8704548cbf1c09 broke this. It is not driver-specific, I got reports for ath9k and mt76.
