Subject[PATCH 3.16 61/63] mwifiex: don't follow AP if country code received from EEPROM
3.16.81-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Amitkumar Karwar <akarwar@marvell.com>

commit 947d315257f9b25b0e24f5706f8184b3b00774d4 upstream.

If device has already received country information from
EEPROM, we won't parse AP's country IE and download it to
firmware. We will also set regulatory flags to disable beacon
hints and ignore country IE.
