hostapd: Allow use of driver-generated interface addresses
Add a new 'use_driver_iface_addr' configuration parameter to allow use of the default interface address generated by the driver on interface creation. This can be useful when specific MAC addresses were allocated to the device and we want to use them for multi-BSS operation. Signed-off-by: Eliad Peller <eliad@wizery.com>
