Add CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211 and clarify client MLME limitations
This is based on a patch from Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, but with the WIRELESS_DEV part removed instead of moved since it does not apply anymore. Additional note on client MLME limitations was also added. (cherry picked from commit 421b4ba50a5ad3ba99ad8a654f96850835271086)
