Add support for using the libertas_tf driver on a managed 
or ad-hoc network.

Ran basic network tests on an OLPC XO-1 laptop. Suspend/resume causes a 
crash but w/o this patch, the driver does not present a configureable 
interface.  (wmaster0 appears but is listed as having no "wireless 
extensions". Fixing this is on my queue).
