Subject: [PATCH 04/17] staging: wfx: fix support for AP that do not support PS-Poll

From: Jérôme Pouiller <jerome.pouiller@...abs.com>

When multiple virtual interfaces (on different channels) are in use, the
device ask to activate Power Save on station interfaces. The device
developers recommends to use legacy PS-Poll in this case since it is the
mode that disturb the less the other interface. However, some AP start
to not answer anymore to PS-Poll. The device is able to detect this case
and return a special warning in this case.

So, this commit catch the warning and force usage of FastPS in this
case.

In order to confuse the less possible the other interface a small FastPS
period is used (30ms).
