Subject: [PATCH] d80211: Reset assoc and auth retry counters

After a succesfull authentication and association the matching retry counter
must be reset to 0.
Failure to do so will result in failure to authenticate after the interface
has been deauthenticated. This does not always happen after the first
deauthentication, but after the interface has been several times been
deauthenticated it will refuse to authenticate.
