Subject: [PATCH] ath9k: Do not select MAC80211_LEDS by default

The ath9k driver hides all LEDs related code behind CONFIG_MAC80211_LEDS
ifdefs so it does not really require the MAC80211_LEDS.  The code builds
fine.  Convert the "select" into "imply" to allow disabling LED trigger
when not needed.

Not tested on HW.
