  Don't use unprocessed (e.g. negociated) peer node's rate set to fill
  Supported rates ie of Association Request, instead, use own supported
  rate set (i.e. ieee80211com.ic_sup_rates).
  In the orginal way, following senario is broken:
  - STA is 11b
  - AP is 11g
  STA will send out sorted AP's rate set in Association Request.  Obviously
  STA will not be able to receive at any data rates > 11Mbit/s.  So this
  breaks IEEE Std 802.11b subclause
  "... The STA must be able to receive at each of the data rates listed
   in the set. ...".
