Any idea why hostapd won't send wmm_param elements?

We found this one as well -- it's not exactly clear though, and the
standard isn't entirely consistent. Also, QoS != WMM.

Interesting. We hadn't considered this. But it isn't exactly clear that
this means that it has to "enable" QoS/WMM, or just be capable of
receiving it.
