[LEDE-DEV] imx6: fail to start IBSS link

Hi Felix,
Hi Tim,

commit "imx6: move to Linux 4.9 kernel" introduces some regression on 
wlan level.

When starting wpa_supplicant to initiate an IBSS link, the handshake fails.
Inspecting it reveals that no data packets are transceived (both TX & RX).

Beacon frames seem to come in, as scanning for networks using wavemon works.

I've tested using a plain native LEDE:    (version tested: 
- Building it for imx6 triggers the regression.
- Only reverting the commit above fixes it.

I'll try to dig a bit deeper what is causing this, but please don't 
remove support for kernel 4.4 yet for this target.

I'll submit a ticket in FS later on if required.

Kind Regards,
