wpa_supplicant: Make GAS Address3 field selection behavior configurable
IEEE Std 802.11-2012, 10.19 (Public Action frame addressing) specifies that the wildcard BSSID value is used in Public Action frames that are transmitted to a STA that is not a member of the same BSS. wpa_supplicant used to use the actual BSSID value for all such frames regardless of whether the destination STA is a member of the BSS. P2P does not follow this rule, so P2P Public Action frame construction must not be changed. However, the cases using GAS/ANQP for non-P2P purposes should follow the standard requirements. Unfortunately, there are deployed AP implementations that do not reply to a GAS request sent using the wildcard BSSID value. The previously used behavior (Address3 = AP BSSID even when not associated) continues to be the default, but the IEEE 802.11 standard compliant addressing behavior can now be configured with gas_address3=1.
