No 802.11s (mesh point) support in mt76 driver

Description

Hi,

The mt76 driver used for the 802.11ac radio in the Xiaomi MiWiFi Mini does not allow selecting the 802.11s (mesh point) mode.

It seems that the "#ifdef CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH" checks in lines 745 and 819 of the file init.c(1) of the https://github.com/openwrt/mt76?(2) disable this mode. If the check is disabled, 802.11s can be selected and used normally (see attached iw outputs). Therefore I believe the CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH variable is not passed at compilation time to the mt76 driver.

Thanks!
