Subject[083/262] wl12xx: fix forced passive scans
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Luciano Coelho <coelho@ti.com>

commit 6cd9d21a0c1e2648c07c32c66bb25795ad3208aa upstream.

We were using incorrect max and min dwell times during forced passive
scans because we were still using the active scan states to scan
(passively) the channels that were not marked as passive.

Instead of doing passive scans in active states, we now skip active
states and scan for all channels in passive states.
