I thought about doing it this way initially but since:

- rt2800_ops are used by rt2800 drivers only and rt2x00dev->priv can be
reused by other drivers for different purposes

- I couldn't come up with the good name for new rt2x00_ops field :)

I decided on the more flexible IMO for the whole rt2x00 stack solution
(however there is some minor difference between them that it can be
changed if you feel strongly about it).
