[PATCH] nl80211: restore the correct nlmode in case of failed ap scan

In case of failed ap scan, we try switching the interface
to station mode and scan again. If this scan fails as well,
we change the interface type to the new interface type,
instead of restoring the original one.

This breaks the ht40 scan retry mechanism (as we finally
try to complete the ap setup with station interface).
