[PATCH 1/7] tests: Wait after removing a BSS

From: Ilan Peer <ilan.peer at intel.com>

When a BSS is removed, the flow continues without actually
waiting for the AP to be stopped. This is racy in flows that
actually expect the AP to be stopped, e.g., test_ap_bss_add_remove().

Try to mitigate such cases by adding a short sleep after the
AP is removed.
