wlan - Don't check bgscanidle setting in net80211 for full-offload scan.
* If full-offload scan is used, the NIC driver (or rather the firmware of
the NIC) should take care of interrupting and continuing the background
scan. So net80211 should ignore the vap->iv_bgscanidle setting then,
instead the NIC driver might look at this setting and pass it on to the
firmware in some way if possible.
* Since full-offload scans won't be explicitly interrupted by net80211, it
also doesn't really make sense to check the vap->iv_bgscanidle condition
in that case, before starting a background scan. If the NIC driver
advertises background scan support and full-offload scanning, the firmware
should be able to execute that scan without interfering too much with our
