    nl80211: Remove NL80211_CMD_SET_MGMT_EXTRA_IE · 65fc73ac

    The functionality that NL80211_CMD_SET_MGMT_EXTRA_IE provided can now
    be achieved with cleaner design by adding IE(s) into
    NL80211_CMD_TRIGGER_SCAN, NL80211_CMD_AUTHENTICATE,
    NL80211_CMD_ASSOCIATE, NL80211_CMD_DEAUTHENTICATE, and
    NL80211_CMD_DISASSOCIATE.
    
    Since this is a very recently added command and there are no known (or
    known planned) applications using NL80211_CMD_SET_MGMT_EXTRA_IE and
    taken into account how much extra complexity it adds to the IE
    processing we have now (and need to add in the future to fix IE order
    in couple of frames), it looks like the best option is to just remove
    the implementation of this command for now. The enum values themselves
    are left to avoid changing the nl80211 command or attribute numbers.
