[B.A.T.M.A.N.] [PATCHv4 1/3] cfg80211: export expected throughput through get_station()

From: Antonio Quartulli <antonio at open-mesh.com>

Users may need information about the expected throughput
towards a given peer.
This value is supposed to consider the size overhead
generated by the 802.11 header.

This value is exported in kbps through the get_station() API
by including it into the station_info object.
Moreover, it is sent to user space when replying to the
nl80211 GET_STATION command.

This information will be useful to the batman-adv module
which will use it for its new metric computation.
