mac80211.sh incorrectly calculates hostapd.conf VHT values

Description

I was documenting the high throughput parameters for mac80211 and I noticed a few bugs in the mac80211.sh script. The values for some VHT capability flags (specifically TX-STBC-2BY1 and RX-STBC-1(234) were incorrectly calculated. I've attached a patch to fix the problem (and also removes an unused reference to tx_stbc.

I also noticed that the rx_stbc option is used for both HT and VHT... the VHT capabilities should probably get their own option.
