mac80211: Use 3-address format for mesh broadcast frames.
The 11s task group recently changed the frame mesh multicast/broadcast frame format to use 3-address. This was done to avoid interactions with widely deployed lazy-WDS access points. This patch changes the format of group addressed frames, both mesh-originated and proxied, to use the data format defined in draft D2.08 and forward. The address fields used for group addressed frames is: In 802.11 header ToDS:0 FromDS:1 addr1: DA (broadcast/multicast address) addr2: TA addr3: Mesh SA In address extension header: addr4: SA (only present if frame was proxied) Note that this change breaks backward compatibility with earlier mesh stack versions.
