broadcast frames

I didn't see anything on this in the list archives.  I'm seeing
broadcast/multi-cast frames sent out when there isn't a station
associated to the AP.  The attached patch appears to fix this problem,
though I'm not certain it is completely correct.  WDS still works and
I don't see broadcasts when there isn't a station associated.
