Updated userspace MLME instructions for current mac80211
Remove the old code from driver_wext.c since the private ioctl interface is never going to be used with mac80211. driver_nl80211.c has an implementation than can be used with mac80211 (with two external patches to enable userspace MLME configuration are still required, though).
