Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 122/130] mac80211: ignore country element TX power on 6 GHz

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit 2dedfe1dbdf27ac344584ed03c3876c85d2779fb ]

Updates to the 802.11ax draft are coming that deprecate the
country element in favour of the transmit power envelope
element, and make the maximum transmit power level field in
the triplets reserved, so if we parse them we'd use 0 dBm
transmit power.

Follow suit and completely ignore the element on 6 GHz for
purposes of determining TX power.
