    Instead of tying mesh activity to interface up,
    add join and leave commands for mesh. Since we
    must be backward compatible, let cfg80211 handle
    joining a mesh if a mesh ID was pre-configured
    when the device goes up.
    
    Note that this therefore must modify mac80211 as
    well since mac80211 needs to lose the logic to
    start the mesh on interface up.
    
    We now allow querying mesh parameters before the
    mesh is connected, which simply returns defaults.
    Setting them (internally renamed to "update") is
    only allowed while connected. Specify them with
    the new mesh join command instead where needed.
    
    In mac80211, beaconing must now also follow the
    mesh enabled/not enabled state, which is done
    by testing the mesh ID.
